The Golden Crown Literary Society Announces 16th Annual Conference

July 8-12, 2020

Albuquerque, NM

Mark your calendar and make your plans to attend now!

The Golden Crown Literary Society is happy to announce its 16th annual conference will be held July 8 to July 12, 2020 in Albuquerque, NM at the historic Hotel Albuquerque.

The Golden Crown Literary Conference is the best opportunity for readers, authors, aspiring writers, editors, publishers, and media to learn about and meet colleagues as they explore lesbian-themed literature. The conference is not only an educational opportunity with multiple master classes and presentations, but also a great time of meeting new authors, making new friends and having a great time playing games, dancing and singing.

The conference culminates with the GCLS Annual Awards Night, where the “Goldies”, (the Golden Crown Literary Awards) for excellence in lesbian-themed literature are announced. Since the first Goldies were awarded in 2005, the categories have expanded from three to nineteen.  In addition, there are special awards for Trailblazer, Lee Lynch Classic Book Award, Directors’ Award, and more.

Membership in the GCLS is not required to attend this event.
