THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING SEEN

The Golden Crown Literary Society was established at a time when women-loving-women and sapphic literature was not being recognized by people outside of our community. 

Founded in 2004, the GCLS knows the importance of being seen. 

Our mission statement is at the heart of everything that we do and we strive to make our literature visible and accessible to all. 

If you'd like to be a part of that legacy, please consider donating now.
