Quo Vadis Salon #1: Writing About Sex in 2017

As the nights draw ever further in, we invite you to cosy up in the Blue Room for the inaugural Quo Vadis Salon: a new, monthly evening of themed discussion and readings.

Our first topic: writing about sex in 2017, was selected before ‘MeToo’ reverberated through every sector of public life and private society. Still, our primary desires on the night remain to consider the place of the erotic, the carnal and sensual in fiction and poetry in our swipe-happy, image-obsessed age while also considering the role of journalistic writing on sexual matters.

To this end, we will welcome three beguiling guests:

Rowan Pelling: Journalist and original editor of the Erotic Review, who departed to launch The Amorist, which seeks to counter the modern tendency to see sex through a purely functional prism by applauding notions of courtship, flirtation, mystery and erotic connection.

Max Wallis: Artist and writer, whose debut poetry collection, Modern Love was nominated for the Polari Prize. His second, Everything Everything, focused on millennial sexuality, was also widely praised. Published in both journals and magazines including Vogue, Wallis is succeeding in his mission to get poetry into places it's not normally seen such as the London Underground.

Eli Goldstone: Acclaimed author of Strange Heart Beating (Granta, 2017), a poignant, tender and droll novel examining all-encompassing love and the repercussions of its loss, who recently began writing a sex column for literary magazine, Somesuch Stories.

Hosted by Suze Olbrich, writer, and editor of Somesuch Stories.

Tickets are £15 including a glass of wine on arrival. There will be an interval halfway through.
