My next LitReactor 4-week online erotica writing class runs May 5-June 2 and registration is now open. Full details about each week's lesson and assignments are in the link above.
You also get exclusive Q&As with erotica writers about their experiences (both with self-publishing and traditional publishing) as well as information directly from editors and publishers about what they are looking for now. You can also start discussions and ask questions of me and your fellow students on any matter pertaining to erotica writing and publishing.
I'm teaching my second class and am thrilled with the platform. For me personally, it suits my personality to be able to work on my schedule, to offer answers as students as questions, and to engage in an online discussion forum where I have the opportunity to flesh out my ideas without worrying about the clock counting down, as I do with in-person workshops (which I am also continuing to teach, but the structure is different). I love that you can take this class from anywhere, so international students are welcome, and you can do it on your timetable (you log in and participate as little or often as you want, and have access to the online classroom indefinitely after the class ends). If you have any questions about how it works, feel free to email me at rachelkb at gmail.com with "LitReactor" in the subject line and I will respond as soon as I can.
Below, here are what several of my previous LitReactor students have said about the class. I can also tell you that three short stories have now been sold based on that class, and I look forward to hopefully hearing about more story sales.
"Rachel's class was a big confidence booster for those of us writing about often-personal topics. I went in thinking 'maybe I'll publish something someday,' and left knowing where I could start right away." —Roz Brinker, former LitReactor student
"I have no doubt that I am a better writer for taking Rachel’s class—not just a better writer of erotica, but a better writer overall. I initially enrolled primarily for information about the erotica publishing industry. And she provided lots of that, including interviews with publishers and more established writers. But it was the writing experience itself that was the most beneficial. The lessons themselves were informative and very helpful, and perhaps the most useful thing of all was the discipline of having to conceive, write, and revise a story each week based on those lessons. The assignments forced me to focus—and fast, and I am all the better for it." —LN Bey, former LitReactor student
"Rachel's class was a supportive, sage and overall fun place to push myself and explore. Moreover, her knowledge of the erotica market is just as valuable as her insight into the craft of writing itself." —Ashton Peal, former LitReactor student
