Relevance is simply the noun form of the adjective “relevant,” which means “important to the matter at hand.”
You are invited to join in this July long discussion of “The Relevance of Sex in Literature … 2016.”
Five years ago I created this particular discussion on my other blog. It proved to be a very lively, and quite fascinating discussion.
Five years in the publishing business is a long time. I’m curious to see if the advent of books such as “50 Shades of…you know what’ has altered perceptions of the ‘relevance of sex in literature’ The following is a brief quote from the original discussion by author Dan Holloway.
Remember that next time you see the tabloids calling for censorship. What do they really object to? Some words on a page? Or having something there, in their line of sight, making them think things they would rather not. What’s really worse? The things we write about? Or it being OK for a whole society to hold moral opinions they’ve never questioned?
Several of the Authors who participated will join us again…I asked them this question..”Would you alter any part of your response from five years earlier?”
The remainder of the discussion is wide open to all who wish to join in. … No word count, and I do NOT censor either the posts or comments. This is a ‘real’ discussion.
I will be scheduling the posts, so please, send me your content via email at
Please note in the subject line…Discussion …’The Relevance of Sex in Literature in 2016.”
Submissions needed by June 30th at Midnight.
