I am honored and excited to tell you I have been accepted into the poetry workshop at the 2018 Lambda Literary Emerging Writer's Retreat coming up in August. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to explore my craft with a group of incredibly talented writers at this workshop.
Many of you know me through homo-centric, the LGBTQ reading series I've curated since 2010. This time the supporter is asking for support. $1,650 is a chunk of change for me. If you have bills, coins, checks, bus tokens, good wishes, or email addresses of friends to share this with, please help me find my way to the retreat this fall.
This writer's retreat for LGBTQ Voices was established in 2007 and is the first of its kind ever offered to LGBTQ writers: a one-week intensive immersion in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, genre fiction and playwriting. The Retreat is an unparalleled opportunity to be mentored by the very best writers in our community, to develop one’s craft, make connections with publishing industry professionals and build a strong community of peers.
