Shedoesthecity has partnered with We-Vibe® to host Arouse: Erotica Writing Contest, and you should enter! Writing about sex, love and intimacy is a fun and pleasureful act, and by entering our contest, you could win $500, plus a bunch of extremely hot prizes. 

If you aren’t sure where to begin, or have never tried your hand at writing erotica before, Shedoesthecity’s Editor-in-Chief Jen McNeely will be hosting two ninety-minute closed-door erotic writing workshops. And they’re totally free! 

This is a class that welcomes all who identify as women and writers of all levels. Don’t be intimidated if you’ve never published a piece before!

Goals of the workshop:

  • Provide tools and ideas to help participants start writing about sex and intimacy
  • Work through creative exercises to help students map out their story
  • Explore what makes good erotica
  • Enjoy an evening with an intimate group of women, and share some laughs while talking and writing about sex

Tuesday September 19th workshop will take place at Good For Her, 175 Harbord (Accessible by wheelchair.)

Wednesday September 20th workshop will take place at Stag Shop, 271 Queen Street W.

Each workshop will have a maximum of twelve students, so reserve your spot now by emailing
