Eroticon 2012: sex bloggers and erotica writers conference

Words: Nicci Talbot

Eroticon is the first UK conference for sex bloggers and erotica writers. It’s an all day event open to anyone writing about sex from novice bloggers to published authors and offers a safe space to learn, network and share. There are workshops and panel sessions covering writing inspiration, tech-skills, photography, intellectual property rights, getting published and more, and the organisers are planning a sublime and saucy evening event. Over 100 sex bloggers and erotica writers are expected to attend and I’ll be booking my ticket asap.

It’s the brainchild of Ruby Kiddell, erotic author and sex blogger who attended the Cybermummy blogging conference earlier this year. She told Bitchbuzz: “The idea for Eroticon came about having attended the Cybermummy conference where I was sponsored through my erotic writing site.  There were other sex bloggers there and I knew that we held back in discussing the content of our blogs in such a general atmosphere and so I conceived Eroticon, a blogging conference exclusively for those writing about sex online.”

So far, the speaker line up includes:

  • Maxim Jakubowski on publishing and editing
  • Lucy Felthouse on PR and marketing your work
  • Scarlett French on collaboration and taking your writing beyond the page
  • John Tisbury on getting started with erotic photography
  • Hazel Cushion – founder of Xcite Books
  • Lori Smith on sex and the media
  • Michael Knight on technology and podcasting
  • Molly Moore on identity, ethics and sex blogging as a parent
  • Josephine Myles and Aisling Weaver will be hosting the Convincingly Queer panel

Date: March 3rd 2012, 8am – 8pm

Venue: Armada Rooms, Bristol, UK

Cost: £100 (book online via the Eroticon website)
