Each year, the Key West Literary Seminar explores a particular literary theme. For “A Seminar Named Desire” 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.

Confirmed speakers are listed below, with more to be announced. Registration is full, but you can sign up here for the waitlist.

Members of our Patrons Circle at or above the $5,000 level are invited to register at any time, even after we are sold out.
