What Authors Are Saying
Diva Magazine have always been wonderfully supportive of the arts and up-and-coming talent. The introduction of a national two day festival is a chance for authors like myself to say thank you in return."
I'm so excited to hear that Diva is launching a literary festival and would love to participate! There has been a boom in lesbian fiction over the last few years and it's wonderful to see it given a high profile event by the magazine that every single lesbian knows!"
