About this Event

Welcome to Paragraph’s first LGBTQ Writers Salon. Our goal is to provide a space for LGBTQ writers to meet, mingle, and discuss writing in an informal setting. Our salons will start with an hour long roundtable discussion with a special guest followed by a mixer with wine and snacks.

We our honored that our first guest will be editor Don Weise of Querelle Press. Don Weise has been an editor and publisher of primarily LGBT writing for the past twenty-five years. Among the writers he has worked with are Gore Vidal, James Purdy, Edmund White, Samuel R. Delany, John Rechy, Leslie Feinberg, Ann Bannon, and Christopher Bram. He's publisher of Querelle Press and the author of two books about the Civil Rights Movement. His work has been recognized for distinction by Publishers Weekly, the American Library Association, and Out magazine. He lives in Manhattan.

This event will start at 6:30pm with our roundtable discussion with Don Weise, and will be followed by a mixer at 7:30pm, running until about 9pm. Our LGBTQ Writers Salons are informal, inclusive, and supportive in nature with the goal of building a long-term sustained community. There will be complementary drinks and snacks, along friendly discussion.

This event is 100% FREE and OPEN to all LGBTQ writers and allies, as well as all Paragraph members (we know you are all allies!). Members, alumni, and Jane Hoppen applicants are welcome to bring a plus one.

For those of you who have been to one of our LGBTQ Happy Hours over the past year, expect the same fun and the same people, but with a new twist!
