Tennessee Williams Festival will hold writing retreat to welcome 2023

Be the queer writer you want to be in 2023! The Tennessee Williams Festival has just the program for you: a writing retreat that will help you create writing resolutions that will set you on a path to success.

With over 20 writers, editors, and agents to guide you, you’ll end the day with goals, knowledge, inside information, and a new community of writers to encourage you.

The retreat starts with a writing marathon and ends with a cocktail hour in true New Orleans fashion. The full-day intensive retreat includes breakout sessions with writers and editors specializing in:

  • fiction
  • poetry
  • nonfiction
  • playwriting

Editors come from the worlds of professional journalism and writing, including Joe Vallese, Editor, It Came from the Closet: Queer Reflections on Horror Film.

Writer’s Resolutions: A Daylong Retreat will be held virtually on January 14, 9am – 6pm CST.

Start your writing year right with an inspiring day of resolution-setting. Live virtual sessions on freewriting, establishing healthy habits and habitats, submitting, querying agents, and working with editors will give you the tools to meet your writing goals—all while nurturing your spirit. And it comes with the flavor and mystique of New Orleans’ long literary history.
