For over 30 years, Lambda Literary has championed LGBTQIA+ books and authors based on its belief that lives are affirmed and culture preserved when our stories are written, published, and read. Since 2007, Lambda Literary has offered the Writer’s Retreat for Emerging LGBTQ Voices—the nation’s premier LGBTQIA+ writing residency, which brings together emerging poets, playwrights, screenwriters, essayists, novelists, and memoirists in a safe, welcoming, and love-centered community.

Fellows have the opportunity to make connections, form a community, workshop writing under the tutelage of talented faculty, attend a variety of panels and craft talks, and participate in a public reading of their work. This year, the Writers Retreat boasts representation in 7 genres, with 8 cohorts attending the Writer’s Retreat, held in hybrid format, from July 30 to August 6, 2023.
