Below is a summary of upcoming open opportunities for poets interested in participating in WordXWord Festival events.


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.
