WHAT IS FEMS?
FEMS is a community based grassroots initiative. We aim to be radically accessible. We are open to people of all ages, and incomes. We seek venues that are accessible to those with limited mobility. We aim to provide accommodations for the who are deaf and hard of hearing community. We want to create a supportive space where people feel like they have a voice. We aim to cultivate the the power we access in spaces that hold us at the center.

We celebrate feminine voices by regularly holding writing workshops, open mics, slams and book releases in and around Boston, MA. We also organize an annual poetry slam tournament for four person teams comprised of feminine-identifying poets.


* WHO IS THIS FOR? *
People who identify as feminine including but not limited to Queer femmes, GNC femmes, two spirit individuals, trans femmes, trans women and cis women who identify as feminine and all the other identities feminine people hold at intersections. We do not prescribe what feminine means or subscribe to the narrow definitions of what a feminine person looks like.
