Can you believe it? AWP 2018 is less than a month away, and your LGBTQ Writer’s Caucus has been busy putting together materials and events for you to make this conference as useful as we can. From now until March, we’ll be highlighting panels, writers, and other events (onsite and off!) If you have anything you’d like us to promote, please feel free to CONTACT US, and we’ll happily give you a shout out and/or add your event to our promotional lists.
For now, mark your calendars for these LGBTQ Caucus Sponsored events! Both occur on Thursday night. Our hope is that by grouping the two events together, we’ll have both a bigger turnout and a better opportunity to build community right from the start!
The LGBTQ Caucus General Meeting
For those who have never been to AWP, the LGBTQ Caucus annual meeting is a great way to connect with fellow queer writers at the start of the conference. We’ll hold elections for the new board, give you the opportunity to network with your fellow writers, and hold space for any needs and concerns. This is the only meeting of the year, and we hope you’ll join us on THURSDAY night from 6:00pm to 7:15pm! We’ll meet in Room 3 & 4, Tampa Convention Center, First Floor
2. The Annual Queer Mixer
We are extremely excited to once again partner with Lambda Literary to co-host a Queer Mixer. The mixer starts at 7:30 at Waterside Grill – Tampa Marriott Westside 700 South Florida Avenue. Not sure where this is? Not to worry, we’ll head over immediately after the LGBTQ Caucus Meeting. YES, there will there be food and drink tickets?! AND, if that weren’t enough, Nepantla: A Journal for Queer Poets of Color will be selling their new anthology! We very much hope you’ll join us!
