As arts funding disappears, and more organizations vie for such limited funding, we count on the generosity of those who wish to support LGBT writers’ stake in the American cultural landscape.

As many of you already know, Saints and Sinners is currently completely organized by unpaid volunteers. It is truly a labor of love as all of the work is done without monetary compensation. Your support could allow us to hire a much-needed, part-time office assistant to help with the pre-conference administrative work, and pay for general operating expenses to produce the events, venue rental, printing, advertising, etc. Additionally, donations would also go towards providing registration scholarships for individuals who otherwise might not be able to afford to register for the event.
We do everything we can to make sure that we create the best Festival possible and our home base in the French Quarter of New Orleans offers a singular environment to an equally singular Festival. Even our conference hotel, the Hotel Monteleone, is an official Literary Landmark—eternalized by Tennessee Williams, William Faulkner, Truman Capote, and Ernest Hemingway in their writing and their personal trips to the Crescent City. While at the hotel for the Festival, why not stop by the famed Carousel Bar, a favorite haunt of Williams? It’s said that Williams found inspiration for this characters from the Carousel guests. Who knows? You many find your very own Stanley or Stella sitting next to you sipping a Ramos Gin Fizz at the Carousel Bar. Please support Saints and Sinners Today!
