*Declaring Our Erotic*
8 Monday evenings, 6:30-9:00pm, beginning January 12, 2015
Open to all women survivors of sexual trauma
Groups meet in downtown Oakland, near public transportation
Cost is $375 (payment plans and partial scholarships available)
FMI: visit writingourselveswhole.org

Description: We each need safe space in which to celebrate our whole erotic selves. In the Declaring Our Erotic workshop, you'll gather with other women survivors* of sexual trauma and try your hand at some explicit erotic writing. In so doing, you will get more comfortable exploring and talking about sexual desires, explore the varied and complex aspects of sexuality and desire, receive strong and focused feedback about your new writing!

* Please note: all self-identified women are welcome

No previous writing experience necessary! These Amherst Writers and Artists model workshops are held in Oakland, close to BART and other public transportation. Spaces are limited, and pre-registration is required. To register or for more information, email jennifer@writingourselveswhole.org or visit www.writingourselveswhole.org!

At Writing Ourselves Whole, we actively work to engage the stories that are hardest to tell or write, and create spaces intended to allow for risky writing and powerful support.

About your facilitator: Jen Cross is a freelance writer whose work has been published in more than thirty anthologies and periodicals. She has facilitated erotic and survivors writing workshops since 2002. She received her MA in Transformative Language Arts from Goddard College, and is a certified facilitator of the Amherst Writers & Artists method (http://www.amherstwriters.com/)
