Devoted to visibility and recognition of books for and about lesbians, Golden Crown Literary Society (GCLS) also produces the conference I look forward to all year. It’s a book love fest that buoys the writer in me.
It also buoys the reader in me, and builds connections between writers and readers. Fun, exhilarating, informative – did I mention fun? There’s games and dancing and conversation. The sound of women laughing together is truly like no other.
GCLS also operates the Writing Academy.
From GCLS’s site:
