Queeriosity is a free monthly poetry salon for LBGTQ and questioning youth aged 12-25 to explore the world through a queer lens.

Queeriosity events are hosted by YCA Teaching Artists H. Melt & Dominique James. Each month has a different theme and features a writing workshop, discussion and guest artist or speaker. There are also opportunities for live performance and publishing work in the Queeriosity Zine. This program is free and no prior experience with poetry or performance is necessary. All events are held on second Thursdays 6pm-8pm at Young Chicago Authors unless otherwise noted. See below for more details on schedule and monthly themes.

There is no need to register for Queeriosity. Our workshops are open to all and work on a drop in model. If you want to come to Queeriosity, all you have to do is show up.

If you have any questions, you can email Ana Wright at ana@youngchicagoauthors.org
