Erotic literature has changed dramatically in recent years. No longer banished to the top shelves of bookshops, it instead holds court on the front tables.
Approaching the subject from a literary perspective, internationally known erotic and multi-genre fiction author and erotic-writing workshop pioneer, Mitzi Szereto will pull back the duvet on the field of erotic writing, offering her own perspective on the craft. In a supportive workshop environment, participants will be encouraged to explore new perspectives and break down boundaries in their work. The workshop is open to all levels of writers.
Mitzi Szereto’s books include Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts; Red Velvet and Absinthe: Paranormal Erotic Romance; In Sleeping Beauty’s Bed: Erotic Fairy Tales; and Getting Even: Revenge Stories. She also has a blog Errant Ramblings: Mitzi Szereto’s Weblog and a web TV channel Mitzi TV.

SOCIAL MEDIA CONFERENCE TALK
Topic: “Social Media For Professionals in the Creative Arts”
Where: Social Media in Business Conference, London, England
When: 21 May 2010
We always seem to hear about social media as a means to sell goods and services, such as mobile phones, apps, etc. But we never seem to hear much about it for those in the creative arts, such as authors, musicians, and artists. Although the goal of these creatives is to sell a product (be it book, album, etc), they are selling far more than the fruits of their labours. They are selling themselves as unique entities, thereby accumulating valuable social collateral that will remain with them well into the future.
