Queer literature has grown wildly in recent years, right alongside a public awakening to the increasingly various possibilities of gender identity and sexual preference. And yet communal creative spaces where LGBTQIA+ people can safely meet, interact, and share ideas seem more vulnerable than ever. With this workshop, we aim to foster a safe and welcoming rapport among LGBTQIA+ writers where we can discuss ideas critical to queer identity.

We’ll not only read the work of writers who identify as LGBTQIA+ (including our own), but we’ll also consider how queerness interacts with the wider literary community. In addition, we’ll set aside time for discussion and group feedback on our projects—both new and ongoing! All literary genres are welcome. Expect to come away with new work, new understanding, and new friends.

This workshop is open to any writer who identifies as LGBTQIA+ regardless of the subject matter they intend to address or the genre in which they write.
