Lambda Literary announced that Ella Boureau has been named the new Awards Administrator. The Awards Administrator ensures the smooth operation of the LGBT Lambda Literary Awards process from selection of judges to selection of the winners. As Awards Administrator Boureau will also manage Lambda's LGBTQ cash prizes including the Emerging Writer Award & the Outstanding Mid-Career Novelist Prize. Tony Valenzuela, Lambda Literary Executive Director stated, "Ella's passion for LGBTQ literature combined with her broad experience organizing within literary & arts communities make her ideally suited for this work. We're thrilled to have her with Lambda Literary."
Ella Boureau concluded, "It has always been my impulse as a creative person to find other queer writers, to honor what they work on & to acknowledge the power that comes from connecting that often lonely pursuit to a larger world. Lambda Literary's mission is born of that same impulse & I'm over the moon to join what is undeniably one of the largest connective forces in the LGBT writing community." Ella is a writer, editor & events curator living in New York City. A graduate of The New School Ella has long been active at the intersection of art & social justice. Her writing has been featured in Guernica, Tin House, Slice Magazine, The Rumpus, Full Stop, Pretty Queer & Huffington Post. Her first play “Helps to Hate You a Little: A Lovestory” debuted at Dixon Place in Fall 2015. She is currently at work on a second play & will be co-curating a new reading series.
