Reading Queer is adapting to the pandemic to ensure that queer voices are heard no matter what’s going on in the world. To that end, we’ve expanded the RQ Writing Academy and will hold free writing workshops every third Saturday of the month via Zoom. This coming Saturday jumpstart your writing with queer spoken word artist Regie Cabico, who will also headline the inaugural Candela Literary Pride Festival. Capturing Fire will be a virtual poetry writing workshop for the LGBTQ community and allies. Zoom link & password will be emailed to you 24 hours before event.

In other news, Reading Queer & Capfire Spoke Word Arts will produce the Candela Literary Pride Festival, a series of virtual readings, performances and workshops celebrating Queer Resilience and Protest during the 2020 Pandemic headlined by Regie Cabico. The mission of the festival is to give queer writers in Miami and Washington, DC access to artistic mentorship–a space to nurture their talents and create virtual connections of solidarity and allyship.
