Here’s how it works: I read something queer that we use as a jumping off point. We all write for 15 minutes- a poem, a blurb, whatever. Then we share what we wrote (optional!) and take a few minutes to respond to each other’s work. Then we do this a second time, and then a chance to share again. All levels welcome!
For all people. The way it works: -Show up at the Open Mic on Zoom (dates coming soon!) -Sign up for a reading slot (3 poems or <5 minutes) -Listen to the featured poet (and tip if you can!) -Listen to all the other poets and share. -Exchange contacts and build community!
Queer Writers Discord Server https://discord.gg/VuaBnn66Ra Forums/chat rooms to make friends and connections, share work, learn about many resources for writers, and even just vent!
Cat Road Trip http://www.catroadtrip.net I have an ongoing blog of 5 years that covers my many travels around the USA in a motorhome and my life on a small family farm in Upstate NY. This is also where I publish my poetry collections for free.
Writers.com’s 2022 Novel Writing Intensive. https://writers.com/novel-writing-intensive I am a novelist who was selected for the Writers.com’s 2022 Novel Writing Intensive. I will be writing a new novel with trans characters over the next 9 months and seeking publication after that. This intensive will provide me with instruction, connections, feedback, motivation, and more.
Things I’d like to do in the future include….
-A writers’ retreat on our farm with guest instructors and more…
-Starting Queer Mart up again in Upstate, NY for LGBTQ+ artists and crafters.
