The Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBTQ Voices was established in 2007 and is the first of its kind ever offered to LGBTQ writers: a one-week intensive immersion in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, genre fiction and playwriting. 

The Retreat is an unparalleled opportunity for emerging writers to hone their craft, learn from  established LGBTQ writers, and make connections with publishing industry professionals and peers.

A Note From Shannon TL Kearns

I've been granted this incredible opportunity to be part of the 2019 Lambda Literary’s Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBTQ Voices and study playwriting with Mfoniso Udofia. This is an honor as well as a remarkable opportunity to deepen my craft, meet and network with other playwrights, and learn a ton. I am so excited about this endeavor. I'm raising funds to help cover my room and board. I'll also be covering my own transportation to and from LA so everything given here helps a ton. Thank you for supporting me as I do this thing!
