Each year, the Key West Literary Seminar explores a particular literary theme. For “A Seminar Named Desire” (January 7–10, 2021) we’re interested in literary explorations of the profane and the profound, the inventive, the graphic, and the deeply felt. This will be a unique gathering of some of today’s most acclaimed writers in conversation about the elemental urge at the center of human activity: desire.
