DC BardFest (http://www.dcbardfest.com/) is a gathering of people committed to supporting up and coming writers, and especially those friendly to the Gay, Lesbian, Transgendered and Bisexual community. It is two-day event, with speakers, panels, and vendors from a variety of disciplines, all focused on the challenge of supporting emerging GLBT authors. Authors, publishers, book dealers, and fans from across the nation and around the world converge on what is rapidly becoming an elite gathering. Guest speakers come from a variety of disciplines, including well-known writers of science fiction, fantasy, romance, screenplays, and teleplays.
Not only is the DC BardFest itself a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we also take advantage of the opportunity each year to contribute to our favorite charities.
Contributors, Supporters and Vendors at the DC BardFest have found that it is a rewarding weekend. We look forward to the coming event with anticipation – of good will, of exciting events, and of ever growing participation.
