Lovin' You Is Easy: Sex & Storytelling w/ Christina Stennett
Writing a “sex scene” is nothing less than a challenge for most writers. Author/editor Christina Stennett joins us for a total reimagining of sexual themes by focusing on overcoming fears that might stop us from writing honest or meaningful sexual content. In this collaborative workshop, participants will plot a story using sexual themes of interest and outline a potential narrative through a myriad of creative approaches. No shame, no “experience” needed, no holding back. Just humbling instruction for storytellers of all levels!
Christina Cicchelli (Chih-Kel-Lee) has eaten boys for breakfast, trampled men for pleasure and constantly writes herself into some serious trouble. A former sex worker and award-winning porn actress, Cicchelli was the cunning columnist (known as the “Media Whore”) of the defunct $pread Magazine. She has spoken about her experiences everywhere, from an ivy league college to seedy but stylish NYC bars. She's currently turned her focus ever so slightly to fiction, and is working on a series of works based on mythology and sensuality. When she's not caught up in her own mystical world, she's a freelance writer for a marketing company and story strategist for authors in need of inspiration and organization.
