The Writers’ Retreat for Emerging LGBT Voices was established in 2007 by the Lambda Literary Foundation, and was the first of its kind offered to LGBT writers. It is a one-week intensive immersion course in fiction, nonfiction, or poetry, aiming to allow new writers learn from established writers in the LGBT community. Faculty have included Dorothy Allison, Claire Carmichael, Bernard Cooper, Elana Dykewomon, Katherine V. Forrest, Rigoberto González, Eloise Klein Healy, Fenton Johnson, Michael Nava, D. A. Powell, John Rechy, Ellen Bass, Ellery Washington and Nicola Griffith.[4]

Writers' Retreat for Emerging LGBT Voices

The Annual Lambda Literary Awards honor "Excellence in LGBT literature" in various categories that change from year to year. Started in 1988, the Lambda Literary Awards are based principally on the LGBT content, the sexual orientation of the author and the literary merit of the work.[3]
