Screw Chocolate Launch: The Ultimate Un-Valentine’s Day Event

February 12, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MST

Roses, cupid’s arrows, chocolate—chocolate? Screw chocolate! Queer up Valentine’s Day instead with these hilarious, heartbreaking (yes, sometimes deliciously filthy) valentines by Calgary authors who have a fresh, occasionally revolutionary (always, insightful) take on love.


Who 1:

Featuring fiction (or is it?), poetry, and non-fiction (or is it?) from Beatrice Aucoin, Dallas Barnes, L. Sara Bysterveld, Lotis Cervantes, M. Jane Colette/Marzena Czarnecka, Callan Field, Elisa Kae, Tanysia Komers, Tet Millare, HP Longstocking, Brooke Nicholas, Alyssa Linn Palmer, Nola Sarina, Dana Stan, T, Mel Vee, Ann Zee, and PW Zellie, and photography from Jennifer Weihmann (Volume 1) and Leslie Pringle (Volume 2).

Who 2:

Screw Chocolate is a collaborative project by YYC Queer Writers, formed in 2013 by writer and activist Dallas Barnes. Our members include professional journalists and published novelists through to passionate amateurs who have not yet seen any of their work in print… but it’s coming. Wait for it.

Why: We believe telling and sharing stories is how we change the world.
