Queer literature is often exclusively defined along the lines of identity and desire. Queer writer = queer work is but the most common version of a formula, pervasive in today’s queer literary cultures, whereby the queerness of a text is reduced to the sexuality of its author and/or its characters.

For this inaugural reading of the 2014 Reading Queer Festival, we invite you to join us as we begin to answer this question in the company of Julie Marie Wade, Sandra Simonds and Jan Becker—three Florida-based writers whose work speaks to the succulent complexity of Reading, Writing, Being and Becoming Queer.
