QLiterati! is dedicated to promoting established local LGBTQ authors; while also attracting the occasional literary superstar and highlighting emerging writers during the open mic.
Last month's premier event attracted an engaged crowd who enjoyed free snacks and non-alcoholic drinks, fabulous door prizes and cookies awarded to audience members who posed ask questions to the authors. Even requests for an open mic participant to share his culinary secrets were granted cookie privileges. All this and more for the reasonable price of FREE--although donations are welcome.
