In 1997, Michelle Tea and Sini Anderson founded "Sister Spit," an all-girls weekly, free open mic night. They decided to take their act on the road, evolving into a traveling event that showcases both new and established writers and creates a platform for underground voices of feminists and the queer community.
After editing an anthology of young, queer writers in 2007, Tea revived Sister Spit as Sister Spit: The New Generation and has held a major tour every year since.
This year, they need YOUR support. By donating to their Indiegogo campaign you help to pay the writers and ensure that the tour can reach smaller, underserved communities. The campaign has less than 40 hours to go, so donate now!
