Reading Queer

EVENT: “The Shadow Self”, a creative writing workshop with Cathleen Chambless at The Light Box at Goldman Warehouse (Map) on Saturday, October 20th from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM.

“Reading Queer has been a unicorn’s breath of fresh air and it makes me proud to be from Miami, but most importantly Reading Queer has given me beautiful friendships with other queer writers who I would not have known otherwise,” says Chambless about her experiences with Reading Queer. “Thanks for nurturing me.”

In this workshop, Chambless will pay it forward and nurture participants’ shadow selves using tarot and ritual to reveal what’s hidden. Participants may also develop surprising new writing material, beautiful friendships and the rare sighting of a real unicorn.


DATE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20TH, 2018 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM
LOCATION: THE LIGHT BOX @ GOLDMAN WAREHOUSE  @ 404 NW 26TH STREET MIAMI, FL 33127. Map.
COST: We need your financial support to foster the careers of emerging South Florida based writers. We realize money can be tight, so only pay what you can afford. Donate here.

DESCRIPTION: Come explore your shadow. Your shadow is the part of yourself that you are unfamiliar with. What’s lurking between the crevices of that beautiful queer brain of yours? This workshop will include elements such as tarot and ritual to draw forth the magical queer being waiting to be released from within you.
