Saints+Sinners LGBTQ Literary Festival
March 28 - March 31
The Festival celebrates New Orleans’ longstanding attraction for LGBTQ writers, and offers established and emerging authors, as well as students and readers, the opportunity to network and nurture their craft—and let the good times roll in true New Orleans fashion.
The Festival features a diverse array of artistic and educational offerings. SAS offers two full days’ worth of panel discussions, with topics ranging from publishing and marketing to retrospectives on the LGBTQ movement. Our reading series also takes place both days featuring nearly fifty writers including new voices and literary icons. Panel topics and discussions at the 2019 Festival include: Love and Desire, Queer Literary Hook-Ups, Dykes To Watch Out For, as well as discussions on poetry, spirituality, and “The Power of Sexuality in Contemporary Literature” with Garth Greenwell and Justin Phillip Reed. There will be over twenty discussions to choose from during the weekend.
