Between the (Paper) Sheets

If you’re a virgin to writing sex scenes, this panel is for you. When a writer opens the bedroom door (read: bathroom stall, kitchen floor, backseat of the car), they are exposing some of the most naked attributes of their characters—their vulnerabilities, desires, neuroses, and proclivities—thus providing a deeper understanding of their motivations. Panelists will explore the language between the (paper) sheets, the secrets of crafting chemistry, and how to write a hot and heavy scene that’s sexy and you know it.
