OutWrite is Washington, D.C.’s annual LGBTQ literary festival. #OutWrite2021 will be August 6-8, 2021.
We’re now reviewing submissions for panel discussions and readings for the 2021 festival. At this time, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is likely that the 2021 festival will be required to be virtual. We will release updates as the situation develops. Submit your ideas!
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.
