Support the future of queer literature by
donating to our community’s up-and-coming writers!

From August 5-12, 2017 over 60 emerging LGBTQ writers from all over the world are coming to Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles to work on their books, mentored by some of the leading queer teaching artists in the country.

Working in fiction, nonfiction, young adult fiction, poetry and playwriting, these rising literary stars have already achieved impressive accomplishments in their early writing careers. Their forthcoming books will add to our rich LGBTQ literary canon.
