Demystifying the publishing landscape for LGBTQ writers - this informal event will start with a wee panel and be followed by a friendly mixer - the aim is to foster conversations around LGBT writing, how to nurture it, promote it, publish it- and hopefully sell it!

The evening will feature ‘An LGBT Writing Group’ (with no name) which has been going for 30 years, LGBT publishers such as Monstrous Regiment and Knight Errant, and writers with experience of publishing.

This event is part of Lavender Menace Weekend celebration of Pride- We’re thrilled to be working with founders Sigrid Nielsen & Bob Orr, for a wee revival of Lavender Menace, Scotland’s first LGBT bookshop.

You can also buy your tickets in the shop & save yourself the eventbrite booking fee :P
