The next installment of Queer Voice sees the expansion of the poetry open mic night into a workshop!  Join me at Scales & Tales for an evening of original poetry, unique prompts, and live performances!  Prompts are given at the event, with a short warm-up prompt before the main writing prompt.  We will invite everyone to share and read on a sign-up sheet.

We will be taking donations to the Compass LGBTQ+ Community Center, which helps us local queers get access to mental health care, health services, social and support groups, emergency services, and so much more.  They are a pillar in the queer community of West Palm Beach, and we are all safer and better off for the works they provide.  I can't say enough about them.  Please check out their website for more information, as they frequently host events and fundraisers.

Covid Precautions

Scales & Tales has a strict masking policy to keep all of us safe!  Thank you, Scales & Tales!


Handwritten, cursive signature says "pea flower tea" in lowercase letters. The flower is a small sketch of a bloom, instead of the word for "flower".
