“Queer people don’t need sponsors, don’t need spectators” - Sibel Sayiner and Violet Trachtenberg
... but they would love you to come share a night of queer writing performed proudly and without apology. This event welcomes all queer identities including those who identify as homosexual, bisexual, non-binary, trans-gender, ace, pansexual and all other shades of the rainbow spectrum.
More than anything, this event allows you to safely express yourself. There will be open mic opportunities for young writers who identify as queer.
WHEN: Wednesday 12 April, 4.30 – 5.30pm
WHERE: Centre for Stories
ABOUT THE LITERARY YOUTH FESTIVAL (LYF)
The Literary Youth Festival (LYF) is the first youth-led festival of literature in Western Australia, run by young people in the Literary Youth Festival Planning Subcommittee of National Youth Week.
LYF seeks to raise the voices of young poets, bloggers, playwrights, graphic novelists, novelists and performers. LYF is about creating more opportunities for young aspiring writers nourishing of a literary movement in WA.
This initiative, like many literary ventures in WA, would not be possible without the tireless work of people within the literary community – along with organisations such as WritingWA, The Centre for Stories and Spoken Word Perth – all of whom are constantly making magic happen in the sometimes literal but always literary sense.
