Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2013 Gay Romance Northwest Meet-Up!
SAVE THE DATE! Gay Romance Northwest Meet-Up 2014 will be held on SEPTEMBER 20, 2014. We hope you can join us!
More than 120 attendees joined Old Growth Northwest on Saturday, September 14, 2013 at the Seattle Central Public Library for Gay Romance Northwest Meet-Up 2013, the first conference in the Pacific Northwest to focus on the rising genre of LGBTQ romance fiction. The conference featured discussions and panels with LGBTQ Romance authors, publishers, editors, and cover artists from around the region as well as Q&As with the audience. Following the conference, there was a post-event “happy hour” book festival at the Hotel Monaco for author signings, author readings, giveaways, and more mingling and chatting.
