Dreamspinner Press Author Workshop
Not a conference or a book fair, but if you happen to be in Orlando...
This is the annual DSP author's retreat where authors get to learn and absorb and attend fabulous workshops.
GRL 2019- Albuquerque
GayRomLit is an annual retreat that brings together the people who create and celebrate LGBT romance for a one-of-a-kind, must-attend gathering of dynamic, informal, and diverse fun.
Because the retreat rotates to a new city each year, the organizers are able to keep things fresh with custom events while still maintaining a spirit of familiarity. From raucous parties to mellow tête á têtes, GRL is the place to connect with old friends and find family you didn’t know you had.
GRL 2019 will take place on October 17-20, 2019 in ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO.
