Dear Community,

Reading Queer relies on your generous support to fund our mission to transform the lives of the queer community through the act & the art of creative writing. Your donation to Reading Queer will impact lives & make a real difference.

Your donation will fund:

  • stipends for creative writing instructors who will teach community-based creative writing workshops with an emphasis on under-served communities.
  • open & free access to creative writing workshops for students in under-served communities
  • stipends to bring nationally recognized queer writers to the annual Reading Queer Literary Festival.
  • the production of the annual Reading Queer Literary Festival.
  • free & open access to the literary salon series
  • the RQ archive


$25 allows one student from an under-served community to attend a workshop
$100 allows four students from an under-served community to attend a workshop
$250 hires one creative writing teacher to mentor a community-based writing workshop
$1,000 brings one nationally recognized queer writer to share their work in Miami
$2,500 the average cost of producing a headliner event for the Reading Queer Festival

Please consider a year-end tax-deductible donation by December 31st to further our work in 2014.

With the support of our donors, Reading Queer has already made an impact on the community with these events:
