The DC Center
OutWrite is a nonprofit festival celebrating LGBT Literature at the Reeves Center, centrally located on U Street NW and home to the The DC Center for the LGBT Community. The 2018 festival kicks off with a launch event the evening of Friday, August 3rd. Saturday, August 4th is our full day of readings, panels, exhibitors and book sales. Workshops for writers will be held on Sunday, August 5th.
In 2017, OutWrite welcomed more than sixty LGBTQ authors as readers and panelists, including Cecilia Tan, Sam J. Miller, M-E Girard, Rakesh Satyal and Victor Yates. We had panel discussions on topics ranging from “This Is How We Do It: LGBTQ Publishers Speak,” “Dignified: Writing Thoughtful Portrayals of Disability,” to “Hidden Histories: Writing, Research and Queer Lives.” Other noteworthy writers from festivals in previous years include Tim Murphy, Alexis de Veaux, and Gabby Rivera.
