Aaron Raz Link, Lambda Literary award finalist and co-author of the
literary memoir What Becomes You; and Hilary Kyle, author of the
novel The Antonym of Apathy.
This event happens tomorrow night, Wednesday, July 9th, from 7 to 9 at the Q Center
for readings, an open mic, Q&As, treats and door prizes!
QLiterati! is hosted by Diane and Jacob Anderson-Minshall. Diane is
Executive Editor at Curve, the nation's largest lesbian magazine, and
Jacob writes the nationally syndicated column, TransNation.
QLiterati! is dedicated to promoting established local LGBTQ authors;
while also attracting the occasional literary superstar and
highlighting emerging writers during the open mic.
Last month's premier event attracted an engaged crowd who enjoyed
free snacks and non-alcoholic drinks, fabulous door prizes and
cookies awarded to audience members who posed ask questions to the
authors. Even requests for an open mic participant to share his
culinary secrets were granted cookie privileges. All this and more
for the reasonable price of FREE--although donations are welcome.
Sign-ups for the 30-minute open mic start at 6:45 but interested
authors can pre-register if they email the organizers at
firstname.lastname@example.org. (Warning: late comers may lose their place on
the docket.) It's not necessary for authors to address gender or
sexuality in their work.
