Erotic as Power is a 5 week writing intensive.
During this writing series we will explore our individual erotic identities and pleasure as a practice through writing poetry and creative essays. The class, taught by multidisciplinary artist and former Youth Poet Laureate of Colorado, Toluwanimi Obiwole, will be shaped by the work of Audre Lorde’s framework of the Erotic as a source of power. In addition to creative prompts, writing, and sharing, we will compile our bodies of work together in a digital archive of pleasure writing.
This class will be kept at 20 people for safety and to foster a sense of community where folks can be heard and have meaningful conversatio. The hope in stewarding this space is to intentionally engage with and be empowered by our different and individual pleasure centers.
