Bear Bards noted as Saints & Sinners feature in Gambit Weekly


The Bear Bards Read event held at JohnPaul’s during this year’s Saints & Sinners queer lit fest in New Orleans drew a crowd of more than 40 people.


Here’s David Bergman in one of a series of photos taken of the readers. The entire series is on my Facebook album for the event.



The reading drew some attention from the New Orleans free paper, Gambit Weekly, which mentioned it in their Preview of the festival.

The event features readings, master classes and workshops on everything from fiction, poetry, working with personal narratives and various genre niches — from mystery novels to poetry publications for the bear community — to getting published and other topics.

Stay tuned for more Bear Bards readings as we approach the release of my next anthology, Hibernation, and Other Poems by Bear Bards.
