by Melissa and James in Norwich, England, United Kingdom

Halfway funded! Sex-paper presentations confirmed!

Morning you lovelies!

I'll Show You Mine is happening, and we're so excited and overjoyed to receive all of your love, donations and for the tickets you folks are snapping up!

We're over halfway to being funded! Thank you so much! There are four weeks to go to the symposium, and we'd love to see you and your friends there :)

ALSO: we have now selected the papers being presented for you folks in the first morning session. We received heaps of amazing papers and it was a privilege to be able to read through them!

Here are the talented beans presenting for you in the first session:

Featuring: Rosalind Brown, Alison Graham, Vanessa Chainey and Vijay Khurana.

A panel of writers working across many forms and disciplines present papers covering topics ranging from evolving analogies between writing and sexual practices, the unfixity of desire, the politics behind teratophilia and the practicalities of writing sex scenes featuring inhuman anatomy, and the consequences of eliding or omitting sex from literature.

These papers made us so excited to read them, and we hope they'll excite you too :)
