I'm Teaching Again

If you're in San Francisco check out my class on smut writing. There'll be another one in December, which I'll post info on when the Learning Annex updates their listings.

Erotica Sells! with M. CHRISTIAN

San Francisco Classes: Course 0406SF Section V
A Workshop by M. Christian

For the beginning writer, Erotica can be just the place to start, and -best of all-- it earns respectable rates. Even for the experienced writer, Erotica is an excellent place to earn extra income or gain a very respectable resume in editing, publishing, or writing for a wide variety of genres. Erotica today is also a widely diverse field, from the typical "men's" magazines to the humorous cutting edge glossy, book or website.

You will receive:
* A current and comprehensive listing of markets for erotic short stories and short novels
* Lessons in how to tailor stories for certain markets and interest groups
* How to avoid common mistakes in erotic fiction
* Realistic expectations of current market payment rates and contracts.

M. Christian is the author of the critically-acclaimed and bestselling collections Dirty Words, Speaking Parts, and The Bachelor Machine. He is the editor of 20 anthologies including Amazons, Confessions, and Garden of Perverse (all with Sage Vivant). His short fiction has appeared in over 200 publications.
