Lambda at AWP 2023

Lambda at AWP 2023

Author: Suzi Garcia

April 3, 2023

Earlier this month, Lambda Literary was in-person during AWP 2023, hosting events and spaces for queer writers to come together and celebrate on another. Thank you to everyone who came to a panel, our first AWP Drag Brunch Reading, our reception, and just stopped us on the street to commune. It was a beautiful time, and we wanted to share some of these moments with you.
