Kathleen Warnock was the editor of the Best Lesbian Erotica series for quite a few years, and is an amazing playwright and erotica writer, too. She runs the Drunken! Careening! Writers! reading series in New York City, and annually in December she hosted a Best Lesbian Erotica release party! The first one I went to was in 2008 (maybe??), and it was where I met authors like DL King, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Tristan Taormino, and queers like Lea Delaria (who was the guest editor one year).
It’s become a bit of a tradition! And then we get to say things like, “it’s the perfect holiday gift! Get one for all the stockings you need to stuff! Pick one up for Grandma!” etc :)
This year, we’re online! Come join us!
Drunken! Careening! Writers! presents “Happy BLE!”
with your special guest host, Sinclair Sexsmith
and hostess, Kathleen Warnock
