Writeidea is delighted to be hosting Polari – London’s award-winning LGBT literary salon. Described by the New York Times as ‘London’s most theatrical salon’ and by The Independent on Sunday as ‘London’s peerless gay literary salon’, Polari now has its home at the Southbank. Founded and hosted by the author Paul Burston, Polari provides a platform for LGBT authors to present their work in a fun and supportive manner. Supporters include Patrick Gale, Ali Smith, and Sarah Waters, who describes Polari as “a guaranteed good night out”.
