Co-presented by Dog Eared Castro

Join San Francisco's Foglifter Press as they celebrate their new issue with rapid-fire readings from contributors. Foglifter is a LGBTQ+ journal and press, publishing powerful, intersectional writing that queers our perspectives; writing that explores the sometimes abject, sometimes shameful, but always honest and revelatory experience; writing that calls into question the things we believe to be true, the things we believe to be known, and turns them on their head for—at least—a moment of consideration.

Featuring short readings from:
Ching-In Chen
Piper J. Daniels
Chekwube Danladi
Cyrée Jarelle Johnson
J.S. Kuiken
t. tran le
Wryly T. McCutchen
heidi andrea restrepo rhodes
Zak Salih
Mimi Tempestt

FREE, $5-10 suggested donation

Registration is required for Zoom access. Spots are limited.
Event will also be livecasted on Facebook Live.
