Lesbianic Authors, author-itative lesbians. Whatever you wanna call ’em. They’ve arrived. (Except for those of us who were already here. We were ahead of the curve.)
The Golden Crown Literary Society (GCLS) holds an annual conference for writers and readers. Last year was the first I had heard of it. This year is the first I’ve attended. The fact that they are literally bringing the conference to me was definitely a plus.
If you’re a fan of lesbian writers (and I am!) it’s a party with a celebrity guest list. If you’re a writer (that too!) it’s an opportunity to network, to swap tips, conversation and spit (wait no, that’s a different party) with your sheroes. And maybe sell a few books and enjoy knowing that the people you love reading are reading you!
Book Fair. Autograph sessions. An Author auction. Karin Kallmaker. Anne Bannon. Katherine Forrest. And ice cream.
What more could a girl want?
P.S. I’m in the left hand corner of the grand ballroom, caressing copies of my poetry chapbook “Chiaroscuro Kisses” in an alluring, buy-me, but otherwise platonic manner. Stop in and say hello. Postcards and conversation are free. Kisses in book form are ten bucks. Kisses by author are negotiable.
