Saints & Sinners Lit Fest

The Saints and Sinners/New Orleans Literary Festival is just a month away… May 8-11.

I will be among the presenters again this year. My panel:

IT’S NOT JUST NEW YORK, BABY
Outside the major publishers in New York, the university presses and the small presses are doing an excellent job of publishing LGBT work, picking up the slack that the bigger presses are dropping. What are the differences between publishing with a smaller publisher? What criterion do they use for selecting what to publish? Is this a better option than the mainstream for a LGBT writer? Join a distinguished panel of editors to see what they are looking for, what their missions are, and if this is the right venue for your work!

Other confirmed speakers include: Dorothy Allison, Mark Doty, Jewelle Gomez, Jim Grimsley, Aaron Hamburger, Stephen McCauley, Val McDermid, Tim Miller, Michelle Tea, and Elizabeth Whitney.

If you were ever looking for an excuse to visit New Orleans, this would be it!
