Queer literary showcase All The Writers I Know will be hosting a night of spoken word performances titled “Things Already Said” about influences in queer art and life on November 17th. Co-produced by Patrick Gill and Mar Curran, ATWIK strives to showcase local queer spoken word talent in an all-ages setting.
“Our goal is to bring queer artists together in a space that is safe for them to share their work and also affirming of their queerness,” Gill (pictured) said. Curran added, “We hope that exploring who has influenced their poetry, spoken word, storytelling, or fiction will be a way for our performers to celebrate who they’ve become. We want the audience to see it as both an homage to those before us and a love letter to who they have developed into.”
Hosting the event is Curran, known for performing his poetry at local showcases such as Word Is Out and Homolatte, in addition to writing for In Our Words blog. Featured performers include H. Melt, Ali Scott, and Jayson Brooks; three other performers will be announced before the showcase.
