Trans/Space is Expanding is a series of online creative workshops inspired to build community and connection through poetry for all members of Tucson’s Trans*, Non-binary, and Queer+ communities. Each session will feature different creative prompts and poems by Trans*, Non-binary, and Queer+ writers, centering work by QTBIPOC writers. Workshops are designed to be interactive, exploratory, and fun. No previous poetry experience is necessary and no one is required to share their writing (there is a sharing-optional period in each workshop, but there is no pressure to share). You are welcome to come to as many sessions as you are able.

*A note on language: I’ve chosen to use the phrase “Trans*, Non-binary, and/or Queer+” in an attempt to celebrate and highlight those identities that, even within the LGBTQ+ umbrella, often get overlooked or dismissed – including Trans, Transgender, Transsexual, Two-Spirit (2SQ), Genderqueer, Gender Nonconforming, Genderfluid, Intersex, Agender, Asexual, Questioning, and Pansexual folx. Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual folx are also absolutely welcome and included! Ultimately, I want to stretch language and the possibilities of identity and community and radical celebration to include all who want to be here
