Saints & Sinners LGBTQ Literary Festival
Marian Hawk

The Festival celebrates this city’s 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. 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 at #SAS19 include: “Sex and the Law: Hands Up and Off”; “Queer Literary Hook-Ups: Gauging the Impact”—a discussion of LGBTQ forerunners whose creations shed light on a historically silenced and misrepresented minority group’s experience; as well as discussions on creative nonfiction, poetry, Desire & Spirituality, and the effect that relocation has on a writer personally and creatively.
