- OUR SUPPORTERS
Lambda Literary has been calling for literary submissions since our first Lambda Literary Awards back in 1989. We’ve held 24 additional open submissions for Lammys since that time and expanded our open submissions to include various writing competitions, most notably our annual Writer’s Retreat.
Today, I’m pleased to announce an open call for submissions of a different kind: applications for a seat on our board of directors.
Wait! Who’s ever heard of an open call for board of director nominations? Isn’t that something that’s universally done quietly and behind closed doors.
Perhaps. But throughout our history, Lambda Literary Foundation has identified the best LGBT literature through open submissions rather than closed door discussions, so why not do the same for our board? It seems like the most logical thing in the world.
As you’re thinking about whether you or someone in your network might be a good board member, consider what we are looking for:
So, if you-or someone you know-has what it takes to be on the Lambda Literary Board, I invite you to fill out the application and submit it to info@LambdaLiterary.org by midnight PT on Monday, October 31, 2013. If you have any questions, please contact me at CShirley@LambdaLiterary.org.
