In a world where LGBTQIA+ literature isn’t often seen in media, we would like to promote authors, books and events to help engage, nurture and promote literature in the rainbow community.
We are a team of enthusiastic, inspired writers, reviewers and readers of LGBTQIA+ literature. Our motivation for the Rainbow Literary Society Australia is to provide an experience that inspires, promotes, and develops LGBTQIA+ readers, writers and publishers in Australia.
We aim to promote and encourage LGBTQIA+ literature from around the globe. National events will provide opportunities for readers to connect with their favourite authors, authors to expand their readerships, publishers to promote their brand and mentoring and dedicated workshops for up-and-coming LGBTQIA+ writers.
Schedules will consist of panel discussions, reading opportunities, workshops, Lunch & Learns networking and social activities, and book signings. Books will be available for sale for those authors attending, providing additional opportunities for marketing and sales.
What People Say
The Rainbow Literary Society produced an author event that I was incredibly proud to participate in. The behind-the-scenes organization from obtaining venues, looking after the authors, ensuring continuity and sequencing the smaller activities within each step of the experience was seamless. I can’t wait for Melbourne because I’m confident that all participants will experience the same again.KJ – Romantic Fiction Author
The Rainbow Literary Society has lead me to some amazing LGBTQIA+ books. I was like finding the holy grail. Having our own LGBT Literary Society in Australia is just what the community is missing! See you in Sydney Team Rainbow!Anonymous – Avid Reader
The Rainbow Literary Society does an amazing job of advocating for, and connecting, LGBTQIA+ authors, readers and books in Australia. I had an amazing time at the Sydney 2021 event, chatting with and learning from other authors and readers. I can’t wait to attend future events.S.R. Silcox -Young Adult Fiction Author
