OutWrite is Washington, D.C.’s annual LGBTQ literary festival. #OutWrite2021 will be August 6-8, 2021.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is likely that the 2021 festival will be virtual. We will release updates as the situation develops.
We’re currently putting together the schedule for the 2021 festival. We had a great turnout of submissions for readings and panels, and can’t wait to share the schedule with you soon!
OUTWRITE ALL YEAR ROUND
OutWrite holds events throughout the year. You can learn more about them below under “Upcoming OutWrite Events” and on our Facebook page.
Due to the pandemic, virtual exhibiting is limited at this time.
