The Sex Scene. Everybody has sex, but it’s hard to satisfy characters’ urges on the page. Close readings of sex scenes and specific prompts can push writers to take risks by learning intimate details of characters’ sex lives. As always the secrets to good sex in literary fiction aren’t secrets, they’re the basics of any scene: firm grasp of character, vivid language, keenly-observed settings, appropriate dialogue and gesture.

BettyJoyce Nash has published journalism and short fiction and taught fiction writing at the Visual Arts Center in Richmond. As part of her research for her story, “Laser Vision,” she qualified for a concealed carry permit in 2011. She earned a master’s from Medill Journalism School, with distinction, in 1988 and an MFA in fiction from Queens University in 2011.
