One of the things I am most excited about this spring is having the chance to not only attend but actually be part of the programming at the 10th Annual Saints and Sinners LGBTQ Literary Festival! I’ve heard incredible things about Saints and Sinners for yaears and am thrilled to have the opportunity to go down to New Orleans this year. At the festival I’ll be reading from Roving Pack and speaking about the power of anthologies to provide a space for marginalized queer voices to be heard. While at the conference I’m also getting the chance to participate in two different master classes – one by Justin Toreres and another by one of the authors who has most influenced me both personally and as a writer – Dorothy Allison!
I sat down with the folks of Saints and Sinners festival to talk about Roving Pack, writing advice, the transformative power of storytelling, and the books that have most inspired me. Click here to check out the interview!
