Call For Submissions: Virginia Festival of the Book

Posted on July 25, 2014 by in Calls for Submissions

Please consider submitting your LGBT-themed proposals to the Virginia Festival of the Book.

From UVA Professor Edward Strickler:

The 21st annual Virginia Festival of the Book will be March 18-22, 2015. Over the past decade I have worked with Festival staff to ensure one or more LGBTQ-themed panel or panel of LGBTQ authors in each festival. I’ve moderated a wide variety of panels–on scientific and medical issues with LGBTQ identities, on public policy issues, on issues of Constitutional law, memoirists, the work of fiction writers, readings of stories about and for LGBTQ youth, transgender themed panels, LGBTQ mystery writers, etc. – and want to continue. Virginia law is particularly oppressive of LGBTQ individuals, families, and communities; so, the more LGBTQ authors on diverse LGBTQ themes the better!
