GayRomLit is an annual retreat that brings together the people who create and celebrate LGBT romance for a one-of-a-kind, must-attend gathering of dynamic, informal, and diverse fun.
This year's Retreat will occur October 16-19, 2014 at the Indian Lakes Resort in Bloomingdale, Illinois.
Because the retreat rotates to a new city each year, the organizers are able to keep things fresh with custom events while still maintaining a spirit of familiarity. From raucous parties to mellow tête á têtes, GRL is the place to connect with old friends and find family you didn’t know you had. Since we tailor each year's event to the sponsors who attend, we're still finalizing our lineup of events. Preregistration of publishers began in January. Author registration opens on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at Noon, Eastern Standard Time and General registration begins in March 1, 2014 at Noon, Eastern Standard Time.
If you are a creator of LGBT romance, consider arriving a little earlier. GayRomLit will host a one-day Writers Workshop for LGBT romance professionals, both new and experienced, on Wednesday, October 15th...one day before the Retreat kicks off. For more details on the Writer's Workshop, check out our overview.
The GayRomLit Retreat is the must-attend event for all who enjoy crafting, reading, and publishing gay romance. Registration is limited to a maximum of 400 people so don't delay. We hope to see you in Illinois!
