we work with LGBTQ+ writers

by championing our network of LGBTQ+ writers and their writing to new and larger audiences through social media and showcase platforms.


by providing links to other platforms and opportunities.


by providing information and support in getting published.

the writing and industry skills of writers at all levels and in relation to their own personal measures of success.


the artistic quality of new LGBTQ+ writing in all forms and genres.


a focus on established LGBTQ+ writers supporting the development of other LGBTQ+ writers.


and encouraging the array of queer and experimental approaches to producing writing and reaching audiences. 

to support each other, share information and experience, and reduce isolation.


to learning and development opportunities including those offered by the regional literature development agencies. 


to the many facets of the writing industry, including agents and publishers where LGBTQ+ writing is often under-represented.
