Getting to Grips with Erotica: A Beginner’s Guide to Writing Kink

28 March @ 19:00 - 21:00

£15 – £18


During this workshop we will get to grips with the words needed to make erotica work – and learn about those best avoided!

We will discover how the most mundane situations can trigger stories of the kinkiest nature. With this is mind, we will use the premise of a trip to the supermarket to stimulate erotic ideas which can be translated into believable and relatable fiction.

We’ll work on creating short scenes that can be expanded into future stories; be they works of flash fiction, short stories, or novels. Who knows, you could have your very own erotic tale to share with a loved one or to enter into an erotic anthology or story writing competition.


  • to become comfortable with the words used in erotica.
  • to understand the difference between erotic, pornographic and sensual.
  • to create future story triggers and stretch the creative imagination within the genre of erotica using everyday objects as inspiration.
