Written by  Lambda Literary


Lambda Literary is proud to announce open submissions for the 2nd Annual Lambda LitFest LA happening Saturday, September 29, 2018 through Saturday, October 6, 2018. Lambda LitFest is a Los Angeles County wide festival featuring readings, workshops, pop-up events, entertainment and timely discussions about LGBTQ literature and publishing.

We are currently seeking literary programming proposals for the Week of LitFest events. These events will be curated by the community and will take place between Sunday, September 30, 2018 and Friday, October 5, 2018. They will occur throughout the greater Los Angeles area at venues secured by proposed parties. All programming should embrace the racial, ethnic, gender, dis/ability, socioeconomic, and geographic diversity of our LGBTQ LA communities.

Your proposal can be for a reading, a workshop, a Literary Death Match type competition, etc. Get creative with it and have fun! To see a list of last year's Week of LitFest events click here.
