April is National Poetry Month

Why do women write? Why do women write erotica? Perhaps this will help. Celebrate National poetry month and your favorite women erotic writers. Read some Anais. Read some Susie Bright. Heck, read me!

Why do women write? Read on…

“I believe that one writes because one has to create a world in which one can live. I could not live in any of the worlds offered to me…I had to create a world of my own, like a climate, a country, an atmosphere in which I could breathe.” — Anais Nin

“Why is the measure of love loss?” — Jeanette Winterson

“Writing, loving: inseperable. Writing is a gesture of love. Just as one is not without the other, so Writing and Loving are lovers, and unfold only in each other’s embrace….For love, the words become loved and read flesh, multiplied into all the bodies and texts that love bears and awaits from love. Text: not a detour, but the flesh at work in a labor of love.” — Helene Cixous

“To do this again. To keep this door open & my hands in it, writing. Making the voice speak what the hands have already spoken. The embrace, before the utterance. Always.” –Erin Moure, Furious
