GayRomLit: Where romance comes out and the tribe comes together.
This year's event will occur October 17-20, 2013 at the Meliá Hotel in Atlanta Georgia.
GayRomLit is an annual retreat that brings together the people who create and celebrate LGBT romance for a one-of-a-kind, must-attend gathering of dynamic, informal, and diverse fun. Because the retreat rotates to a new city each year, the organizers are able to keep things fresh with custom events while still maintaining a spirit of familiarity. From raucous parties to mellow tête á têtes, GRL is the place to connect with old friends and find family you didn’t know you had.
Because we tailor each year's event to the sponsors who attend, we're still finalizing our lineup of events. Preregistration of publishers began in January. Author registration and General registration opened on March 9th at Noon, Eastern Standard Time. Additional details about registration, hotel, transportation, and more will be available soon.
If you are a creator of LGBT romance, consider arriving a little earlier. For the first time, GayRomLit will host a one-day Writers Workshop for LGBT romance professionals, both new and experienced, on October 16th...one day before the Retreat kicks off. For more details on the Writer's Workshop, check out our overview.
The GayRomLit Retreat is the must-attend event for all who enjoy crafting, reading, and publishing gay romance. Registration is limited to a maximum of 400 people so don't delay. We hope to see you in Atlanta!

We'd like to thank the generous contribution of our Sponsoring and Supporting Publishers for their contribution to GRL! Without their support, registrations would be unaffordable for all but a few attendees. Not only do sponsoring publishers provide our authors with a platform for their work and a support system to further it, but more than any other element of GRL, they set the bar for professionalism, style, and camaraderie.
