Spit Love: A Queer Poetry Slam

Sep 26, 2020, 6:00 pm

Moab Pride is delighted to present the FIFTH Spit Love: a queer poetry slam!

In light of COVID19 we have contingency plans. Our first option will be to have performers come, and have the event be open at partial capacity, with ushers ensuring proper spacing. In the case of another shut down we will plan to stream it live and virtually.

We are inviting poets who are willing to follow COVID protocol, prepared for adaptive planning, and from Western Colorado or Utah (of course both states on occupied indigenous land) ONLY. We are explicitly asking folks not in our immediate and adjacent communities to wait until 2021 to attend Moab Pride!

This year to ensure ample space and stipends for all poets
we are are only having seven poets.

Spit Love is a LOVE themed slam. We do NOT censor storytelling ❤ but invite the poets to explore the layers of queer joy when considering poems for Spit L O V E.

Purrks include:
- Housing at the Lazy Lizard for Thursday, Friday, AND Saturday evenings, September 24th-26th.
- We will have dinner provided Friday and Saturday, as well as plenty of snack attacks and left overs.
-$150 for every poet!
-We will be provided gas money!
To qualify:
1. You are queer.
2. You are part of the first 7 poets.

Registration for poets will begin June 9th.
1. Reina Kapiolani Pahul
