OUTrageous Voices is a fully inclusive. intersectional, southeastern, lesbian, (bi, trans. & queer inclusive) women's writing conference. We have a vibrant conference with our history based on Womonwrites conferences. OUTrageous Voices is an inclusive conference for lesbian writers and others who identify differently but know they belong at a lesbian writing conference. For OUTrageous Voices, the words "queer, lesbian, and women" are used as umbrella terms; we fully support and respect self-identification.
Twice yearly, we come together for a shorter time(Thursday-Sunday) in the fall and a little longer bit of the week together(Wednesday-Sunday) in the spring.
Workshops, story-telling, writing, performing, and spoken word, are a few items on the agenda besides a plethora of other activities(swimming, hiking, board games and more).
We are currently having the conference in central Georgia, about an hour south of Atlanta, at the Calvin Center. Please check out our Facebook page OUTgeous Voices for more information and community.
Stay tuned for more information!

It inspires me to be out of my element, among the elements, and with people willing and vulnerable enough to do the same using the most important thing we have in common; words.
