Queer.Archive.Work is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) reading room, publishing studio, and project space serving Providence, RI and beyond.
QAW was founded by Paul Soulellis and incorporated in the State of Rhode Island on March 2, 2020 to support artists and writers with free, open access to space and resources for experimental publishing, with a special focus on queer practices. QAW includes a non-circulating library of books, zines, and objects, a risograph printer, and project installation space. Programming includes Risograph Residencies, Open House Free Printing, and Reading Room Workshops.
QAW strives to be accountable, to center marginalized voices through intersectional work, and to cultivate inclusive, safe platforms for independent, queer publishing.
