Outwrite is a celebration of LGBT literature, authors, writers, and poets. This year’s festival will kick off on Friday, August 4th with an event in collaboration with Smut Slam DC, location and details to be announced soon! On Saturday, August 5th, there will be a full day of readings, panels, book sales, and exhibitors. To finish the weekend, a number of writing workshops will be held on Sunday, August 6th.

We are delighted to announce that our keynote speaker is Cecilia Tan.  Cecilia is an author, editor and publisher at Circlet Press, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
