The 1st Queer & Feminist Poetry Awards by Unwanted Words were a moment to recognize the talent and excellence in our community. The Awards are a non-for-profit celebration of the best and most outstanding poets and spoken word artists whose works discuss topics of feminism and the queer experience from an intersectional perspective, centering on diversity and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) voices.We invited LGBTQ+ & feminist poets, writers, spoken word artists in Rotterdam and its surroundings to submit their applications to win an award in one of our six categories. Applications are closed and finalists will be announced soon!The Queer & Feminist Poetry Awards are organized by Unwanted Words Project, an award-winning platform for up & coming queer voices working with poetry and spoken word based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. With the support of the Hang-Out 010, Awesome Foundation Rotterdam, Dona Daria and WORM.

We would like to congratulate all of the participants, the winners and nominees. We were thrilled to see so much talent and queerness during this celebration. Thanks for sharing your story and truth with us!

We would also like to thank all of our partners! Specially Worm, The Hang-Out 010 and the Awesome Foundation for helping us make this possible.
