IS SEX NECESSARY? AND IF IT IS, HOW TO WRITE A GREAT SEX SCENE

Fictional characters do all sorts of things that real people do, but must writers describe all of it? This panel will explore the following questions about sex in fiction: When does an otherwise serious novel require a sex scene? How does one write a sex scene without being unintentionally funny? Where exactly is that sweet spot between showing too much and too little? Panelists include novelists Dorothy Allison, Bernice McFadden, Jami Attenberg, and Nathaniel Rich. Moderated by author, Constance Adler.
