Eroticon 2015 is fast approaching! Here's the low down...
Eroticon is the UK's conference for sex bloggers and erotica writers. A weekend of workshops where you can learn, share, network and meet the people behind the names on your computer screen.
Eroticon 2015 takes place on 1st & 2nd of August in Bristol UK.
There's loads going on over the weekend, including get-togethers on the Friday and Saturday evenings. The Brit Babes love Eroticon and in the past have been there in force, but this year the dates haven't worked so well for everyone. However, Lily Harlem and Kd Grace are not only attending but also running a 45 minute creative writing workshop on the Saturday afternoon.
There are lots of great speakers lined up and you can read all about them here.
The session Lily and Kd are running is called Crafting Creativity and is aimed at new writers preparing to publish their work for the first time, but will also be of benefit to bloggers who want to polish their short stories and create a more professional image for their blog.
The session will start by discussing the big picture when writing erotica/erotic romance (timelines, characterisation, plot) and aspects such as avoiding head hopping, ‘showing not telling’ and then work down to the fine details of crafting each sentence. By the end of the session the audience will have a better understanding of how to create an ‘arc’ in their story and how to make characters believable and 3D. They should also be able to analyse their own writing to eliminate common mistakes that make their work look unpolished and unappealing to publishers and in turn readers.
You can check out the Eroticon Blog and find out more on the website. If you haven't been to Bristol before it's a modern and vibrant city on the River Avon about 2 hours west of London.
