July Gathering: Erotica

Pleasure Forum Australia’s proud association with Melbourne publishers Little Raven brings you July’s gathering showcasing some of Australia’s best Erotica authors in a night of passion, intensity and absolute hilarity. Erotica has never been hotter, sexier or more hilarious! Hosted by Cyndi Darnell, this event will provide the antidote to your midwinter blues and inspire you to reach for a hot toddy or even a hot Teddy!

 Contributing Writers / Speakers

Little Raven publishers is a publisher of erotic fiction, established in 2011. In November last year Little Raven released the anthology of erotic fiction and host regular events and writing workshops.
  • Van Roberts, director of Little Raven publishing will be head-lining this event and available for discussion about submissions to future anthologies. We’ll find out what Van’s inspirations are and what Little Raven’s history is along with future directions for Little Raven’s vision.
  • KL Joy has been around the traps, in the traps and over the traps of BDSM for a number of years now. Having watched from the sidelines (an avid voyeur) and been a participant on both sides of the crop (and Switch!) she learned her stuff first hand and was never afraid to ‘go there’ in the name of research. Her first book Catalyst: Stories of Awakening was self published in 2009 but 2012 was the year it took off with a bang! Now published under US publisher Storm Moon Press, she has just released her second novel Desire: Stories of Secret Longing.
  • Dosh Luckwell is a sex poet and theatre maker. Over the past couple of years Dosh has created a spoken/word music album (Sex Poems), a debut one-man show (Mr Femme Fatale), a poetry/art installation (Sex Poetry Booth) and an outrageous theatre show set in a shop window (Iron Man). Dosh was awarded the title of WA Best Emerging Artist at the 2012 Fringe World awards for Mr Femme Fatale. Dosh has also received, to date, the Best Live Art award at the 2012 Melbourne Fringe for his ability to relentlessly outpour on the spot ‘sex poetry’ at the Sex Poetry Booth. As a whole, Dosh’s practice actively connects poetry and erotica with music, theatre and installation.
  • Aimee Nichols is an erotica writer and co-founder of Va Va Boombah, Melbourne’s first plus-sized burlesque revue. Her work has appeared in anthologies including The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica Volume 6First Timers: True Stories of Lesbian AwakeningSixteen of the BestGot a Minute?

Randall has toured around Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia and Borneo, and competed in poetry slams in New York and London, and been broadcast on RRR and 3CR in Melbourne.
