Dottie's Coffee Lounge, 444 North Street, Pittsfield

The theme is PLANTED. The stories are yours. Admission is free. Stories start at 7P.

Doors open and food will be available for purchase starting at 6P.

Similar to a story slam in spirit, WordXWord's Stories is a spirited sharing of true, first person stories told, not read, circling loosely around a theme. April’s theme is PLANTED. You'll have to be there to know where the stories take us.

Poets Creating Conversation

May 14, 7P

Unitarian Universalist Church, 175 Wendell Ave, Pittsfield, MA

The prompt is METAMORPHOSIS. Admission is free.

Not for the faint of heart, Poets Creating Conversation throws out a single word and asks poets to respond. The results defy expectations!

Register to take the challenge and share a poem.

Equal parts art and community, WordXWord is where words go to be heard. Poets Creating Conversation is an ongoing series of events that challenges poets (and soon-to-be-poets!) to circle loosely around a theme or issue in the current social discourse to create a broad, multi-dimensional “conversation” between poems, poets, and audience.
