I wanted to let you know there are 7 spots (of 16) left in my next LitReactor online erotica writing class, which runs February 11-March 10. Registration closes either February 10 or when it sells out, whichever happens soonest.
You can read about the weekly lectures and assignments at LitReactor, but I wanted to share some details that aren't on there (though I really should add them).
In addition to the weekly lectures and writing assignments, which you can read more about at LitReactor, I also offer daily posts about relevant topics, such as social media presence, choosing a pseudonym and exclusive to the class interviews with publishers, editors, literary agents and authors. This will be my sixth time teaching Between the Sheets, and each time I strive to improve it and make it as up to date as possible. For this class, I've been researching the market and interviewing new agents and publishers and reading extensively in the genre to bring you the most up to date information possible.
You can also ask me and the class anything on LitReactor's message boards and if I don't know the answer, I will research it for you and find out. I definitely encourage students to bring questions and ask as much as you want during the class. You'll also be able to access the materials indefinitely once the class ends, but you'll get the most out of it if you participate as it's happening. You'll be invited to join my private online group for alumni of my online and offline classes to continue the conversations from class and ask further questions, and that's where I share calls for submissions and news related to erotica.
I put a heavy emphasis in the class on preparing your writing to submit to publishers, in part because I think it's a good lesson in going from start to finish and crafting your words to meet a given call for submission, and because I believe it's a wonderful learning process. I've had numerous students report back on their progress and will also share their perspective on what the submission and publication process is like. I aim for this class to be a place where students from around the world (we tend to have a mix of students from various countries) can learn from me and from each other, delve into what they want to write about and craft completed stories that they can either submit as is or continue expanding upon.
Questions about the class? Email me at rachelkb at gmail dot com with "LitReactor" in the subject line. I'm also hoping to host a webinar next week for those with questions and am just sorting out the technical details and should have that information soon.
