SILK SHEETS: WRITING EROTICA

We have reached critical mass: There is one writing course or workshop for every resident of Manhattan. Novels, memoirs, journalism, degree programs—you name it; there are 40 of them. None of them beat Tsaurah Litzky's SILK SHEETS: WRITING EROTICA, offered by the New School's Adult and Continuing Education division. The frequently-published sexy Jewish grandmother doesn't just hand out a zillion euphemisms for penis, she teaches the transgressive work of Burroughs, Bukowski, Califia, and Nin. Then it's your turn to write.
