About the Event
The inaugural Glitterary Festival is a queer literary festival with a broad definition of what is literature and what is queer. Interested in texts where gender, sexuality, masculinity and femininity can be challenged and explored, the festival is invested in conversations about race and class and issues of intersectionality. We’re intrigued by transgressions of boundaries, queering what we think we know about identity. We are curious about the intersections of the written word with the natural world and with other art forms, such as music, dance, film, visual arts, etc. And we're creating an inclusive space that welcomes not only academics and writers but anyone open to learning and celebrating queer literature, with a special outreach focus encouraging the participation of Mississippi teenagers.
