Join us for our tournament Friday, October 18 – Sunday, October 20, 2019.
Registration begins August 5.
The FEMS tournament (the foreshortened name for the Feminine Empowerment Movement Slam) is a community based, grassroots poetry festival that aims to be radically accessible. Radical accessibility looks like welcoming people of all ages, incomes, using venues that are wheelchair accessible, creating affinity spaces, using language that is gender inclusive and engaging with our community
to make our spaces better. We also aim to provide financial accommodations for any team that cannot afford the fees. This slam is being organized by queer femmes of color and is accepting loving volunteer and sponsorship assistance from non-feminine people from the community.”
