“Conversations of closed mouths: Strengthening our experience thru literature”
Its time to heal, make amends, and just plain ole TALK. The Literary Soul Symposium, provides an outlet for closed mouths to engage in conversation. There are many difficult topics in our GLBTQ Community that often get avoided because they are complex and very emotionally charged. However, they need discussing. The discussion (or “Conversation”) helps to facilitate the healing that inevitably brings wholeness. Topics such as Domestic Abuse, Harassment, Molestation, Mental Illness, HIV and many others that people deal with, but are often “closed mouth” about , because the subject(s) are hard to broach.
This year the Literary Soul Symposium (LSS) will be an aid in opening the conversations about many hot, but difficult topics. We believe that literature can assist because it can serve as a bridge to starting the conversation, as well as, be a resource in finding avenues and solutions. Held September 19-21, 2014 at the Carl Bean House in Los Angeles, California, LSS in its 3rd year will once again stand as a reputable source of promotion and support of the diverse literary efforts of GLBT Authors.
Through our appreciation of Literature, we find that we are not alone in our struggles. And, find strength in knowing that…if others in the stories we read can make it, so can we. We won’t remain “closed mouth” about what hurts or impacts us…we shall overcome.
