Join us for speaQ (pronounced “spEEk”), a writing workshop and sharing circle for queer & trans young people
🌈 What to Expect? 🌈
Your story matters, and we’re here to amplify it.
💫 Grounding: easing into the space together, introducing ourselves, and connecting with muse
🔗 Engaging: getting the creative juices flowing and comfort level up with a few collaborative activities
📝 Expressing: space for the heart to speak – creative prompts to guide your writing or time to create without rules
🎙️ Sharing: space to share new or old works, if you feel called
😌 Environment: a nurturing and judgment-free zone – your identity is celebrated and your voice is heard
🌻 Who Can Attend? 🌻
We’re inviting queer and trans young people (typically around the ages of 13-26) who are leaning into their creative expression <3
No matter where you are on your writing journey – whether you’re a seasoned wordsmith or just discovering the magic of pen and paper – you’re welcome here.
