The 1st Queer & Feminist Poetry Awards
The Unwanted Words Queer & Feminist Poetry Awards is a moment to recognize the talent and excellence in the LGBTQ+feminist community. This event is organized by the Unwanted Words and will take place in WORM on the 27th of September.
This evening will feature queer & feminist poets and spoken word artists in the Netherlands and around. The 1st Queer & Feminist Poetry Awards are a non-for-profit celebration of the best and most outstanding poets and spoken word artists whose works discuss topics of feminism and the queer experience from an intersectional perspective, centering on diversity and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) voices.
The finalists in each category will perform live on stage. Their performances will be judged by an outstanding jury formed of: Zaïre Krieger, Silvana Sodde and Sandy Bosmans! You want to support your favourite poet, guess what? There is even a Peoples Choice Award, so, you can vote and crown somebody yourself!
