Event: UK GLBTQ Fiction – Read it, Write it, Love it

September 14th - 16th 2012 will see the third annual UK Meet for readers/writers/reviewers/fans of GLBTQ fiction.

There will be a full day of programmed events on Saturday 15th, plus social events on Friday evening and Sunday morning.

From its modest beginnings in 2010, when a group of the most respected British and European authors in m/m romance got together in a library in Ely, this convention has already doubled in size, developed panels and guest speakers, thrown out links to publishers, editors, writers and fans alike, and looks set to become a major player in the field of GLBTQ fiction in the UK.

In 2012 we aim to be bigger and better yet.

Set at the elegant Mercure Brighton Seafront hotel

This year’s convention will feature talks by top authors, panel discussions on hot topics in the field of GLBTQ fiction, such as BDSM, Shifters, Beta readers, Online Interaction, Adapting fanfic, US settings, Self publishing, 1-to-1s for budding authors and more, while a separate room is available for chilling out, socializing with your favourite authors/pitching to publishers and agents etc.
