Call For ReadOut Festival Submissions

By Charlotte Robinson, November 16, 2021

The 5th Annual ReadOut Festival of Lesbian Literature is taking place virtually from Friday February 18th to Sunday February 20th 2022 via Zoom. This year’s theme is “Lesbian Voices, Stronger Together” & submissions for Pods & Pearls are now open until November 30th 2021. Pods are real-time panel discussions of 2 to 5 authors or workshops that relate to lesbian literature that take place during the Festival. They’re accepting submissions for panels, workshops & other interactive programming of 60 to 90 minutes in duration. Topics must relate to literature by, for & about lesbians. For example in ReadOut 2021 Susan Stinson & Sally Bellerose talked about how their friendship has developed along with their writing. In another Pod the author of Queer Virtue, Rev. Liz Edman was interviewed about how queer identity & experience can enrich Christian theology. In addition to Pods ReadOut is also accepting submissions for Pearls which are 5-minute prerecorded readings by authors of literature by, for & about lesbians. The deadline for Pearls submissions is November 30th 2021 as well. The LGBTQ Resource Center is committed to promoting awareness of the diversity of experiences, contributions & needs of people who are LGBTQ. They do this by providing educational, social & recreational opportunities through the Gulfport Public Library, including books, films, music, speakers, exhibitions & other events as well as an online presence. The LGBTQ Resource Center is also seeking volunteers to assist in planning the ReadOut 2022 Festival so if you would like to be involved & have experience with event planning, virtual events, marketing, social media, fundraising, or evaluating author submissions check it out.
