I'm so excited about the 2017 Lambda Literary Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBTQ Voices! Lambda Literary established the Writers Retreat back in 2007. It's the first workshop of its kind ever offered specifically to LGBTQ writers: a one-week intensive immersion in fiction, nonfiction, playwriting, and poetry (the track I'll be part of). Lambda Literary says that "the Retreat is an unparalleled opportunity to be mentored by the very best writers in our community," (like me! I hope) "to develop one’s craft, make connections with publishing industry professionals and build a strong community of peers."
I need your help, though. It'll cost me about $1,800 to attend - in workshop fees, room, and board. I can cover about $700 of that - can you help with the rest? If you use the link provided to donate to my expenses, your donation will count as a TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATION TO LAMBDA LITERARY. How cool is that???
July's my birthday month - consider it the only gift I'll ever ask you for. (Anyone who donates $50 or more will get a full-name acknowledgement in my first published collection of poems. Promise.) Just click on the link below:
