Call for Proposals

Lambda LitFest LA

Los Angeles, CA


We want to hear from you! Lambda Literary is currently soliciting proposals for the 2nd Annual Lambda LitFest LA happening Saturday, September 29, 2018 through Saturday, October 6, 2018. Lambda LitFest is a Los Angeles County wide festival featuring readings, workshops, pop-up events, entertainment and timely discussions about LGBTQ literature and publishing.

We are currently seeking literary programming proposals for the “Week of LitFest” events. These events will be curated by the community and will take place between Sunday, September 30, 2018 and Friday, October 5, 2018. They will occur throughout the greater Los Angeles area at venues secured by proposed parties. All programming should embrace the racial, ethnic, gender, dis/ability, socioeconomic, and geographic diversity of our LGBTQ LA communities.

Your proposal can be for a reading, a workshop, a Literary Death Match type competition, etc. Get creative with it and have fun! To see a list of last year’s Week of LitFest events click here.

Accepted proposals will be included in the official 2nd Annual Lambda LitFest LA program guide.

Please note: You may propose a programming idea without yet having confirmed a venue or all participants. You will have time to finalize your program this summer.
