There is now less than two weeks to apply to the 2018 Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBTQ Voices in Los Angeles, CA. Applications are due by February 1, 2018.
This is an unparalleled opportunity for emerging LGBTQ writers. The Retreat provides writers open access to industry professionals and the opportunity to hone their craft in a workshop setting. The 2018 Retreat will be held August 5-12, 2018 on the campus of Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles.
The 2018 faculty include Chinelo Okparanta (Fiction workshop), emily m. danforth (Young Adult Fiction workshop), Ryka Aoki (Poetry workshop), Benoit Denizet-Lewis (Nonfiction workshop), and Luis Alfaro (Playwriting workshop).
Applicants of the Retreat submit prose, poetry or theatrical manuscript pages that are evaluated for craft, creativity and originality. Twelve students per workshop are accepted into the competitive program where they spend the week working on their manuscripts, attending guest lectures led by publishing industry professionals, and participating in public readings in venues around Los Angeles.
Ability to pay is in no way part of the decision-making process and scholarships are available. Lambda Writers Retreat Fellows have gone on to publish an impressive array of works.
