A.L. Brooks went to Lesvos Lesfic 2016 purely to fangirl over Jae, and she’s not afraid to admit it. But Lesvos Lesfic turned out to be so much more than an opportunity to publicly swoon over the skills of such a well-known author. There were, of course, other amazing authors to connect with—G Benson and Gill McKnight. And there were awesome readers there too, all sharing their love of lesfic and happy and willing to discuss it for HOURS. Over coffee, over beer, over food, on a walk, in a bar—they didn’t care, they discussed lesfic everywhere. It was fun, enlightening, and Brooks is delighted to be going back to experience it all over again.
