Our Story

We started LCLC out of a love for lesbian fiction books and a need to have a conference on the west (left coast). It was created with the intent of welcoming all authors regardless of where they are in their publishing journey. Work shops in the past have included - how to create a believable plot, moving from idea to a manuscript, writing the hook, hands-on demonstrations by industry professionals and more. LCLC is a great conference to network with industry professionals and meet your biggest fans and have a great time.

LesFic readers can take part in Q&A sessions, readings, and mix and mingle shoulder to shoulder with their favorite author. The conference is intimate, welcoming, and a safe space for women. We keep the attendance under 100 so that it is not overwhelming because, let’s face it, authors and readers can sometimes be introverts...lol.

We have resounding support from our spouses who love the LCLC. They feel like it is more of a retreat than a stuffy conference. We host a lot of the conference space outside on the grounds of the SkyLark Hotel, which means we incorporate the pool and garden area for meals, mixers, and entertainment.

 

The LCLC is hosted in Palm Springs every year for several reasons:

  1. There is no guessing where the next conference will be.

  2. We have established a local network of vendors and support staff.

  3. Palm Springs is beautiful, warm and LGBT friendly.
