Left Coast Lesbian Literary Conference (Retreat)

The Premier LesFic writer and reader conference on the West Coast

***Unfortunately LCLC 2020 has been cancelled

Check back with us in 2021***


The 8th Annual LCLC conference (Retreat) brings Lesfic readers, writers, editors, and publishers together from around the U.S. to promote lesbian literature and to inspire up-and-coming writers. Guests will have access to all the authors, editors, and publishers to mix and mingle throughout the conference. LCLC is a casual, safe space, and intimate conference that feels more like a retreat.

The LCLC consists of four fun-filled days packed with panel discussions, workshops, author chats, and author readings in the afternoon.

It is an all-inclusive event with meals, drinks, and snacks provided daily for All-Access Pass holders. The LCLC is open to all Lesfic authors, editors, publishers and readers regardless of publishing status or publishing house.


The LCLC is produced by Sapphire Books and sponsored by Desert Palm Press.
