Education at GCLS

One of the key mandates of the GCLS mission is to provide educational opportunities related to lesbian literature. 

The GCLS takes this responsibility seriously and as a result we offer multiple opportunities for everyone - from those who are new to writing to experienced authors.  We recognize that there are varying degrees of affordability required, in order to give everyone a chance to learn. 

The GCLS now offers these educational programs:

  1. The GCLS Writing Academy:  The GCLS Writing Academy is a year long intensive program for any writer who wants to hone their craft. In this course, students will learn the critical components of quality writing. The Writing Academy goes beyond craft of writing and takes students through all aspects of writing and publishing a novel.

  2. The Cate Culpepper Mentoring Program:  This is a free program available to new or newer authors who have a manuscript completed and would like feedback from an experienced  author on how to improve the manuscript before submitting it for publication
