Join the book launch of the 1st Queer & Feminist Poetry Anthology by Unwanted Words. This book is a compilation of texts written by selection of 50 poets and artists based in the Netherlands whose works discuss topics of feminism and the queer experience from an intersectional perspective, centering on diversity and embracing BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) voices.

This book is intended to be a celebration of the talent and stories of our intersectional community and to sow seeds of interest, inspiration and enthusiasm about Queer and Feminist poetry. Join this night full of queer love, talent and performances!

The Queer & Feminist Poetry Anthology is initiated by Unwanted Words Project, an award-winning platform for up & coming queer voices working with poetry and spoken word based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. With the support of the Gemeente Rotterdam, Pitcher Perfect 010 and WORM.
