Below is a summary of open opportunities for poets interested in participating in WordXWord Festival events.
Esau’s Heel Trail, Route 8, Becket, MA
In Becket, roots are stretching, shoots are popping, leaves have returned from the south and Bruce is our excuse for WXW to serve poets al fresco. And we’re using a bench dedicated to long time friend and poet, Bruce Garlow as the starting point to spill some original poems in the woods. Note that this is not a memorial service, but a celebration of our mutual love of words, and as Bruce would tell you, you never know what you’ll get when you let poets loose in the wild.
Dottie's, 444 North Street, Pittsfield, MA
The theme is UNSPOKEN. The stories are yours. Admission is free.
Dottie's will have food and beverages available for purchase.
Similar to a story slam in spirit - minus the score keeping bit - WXW Stories is a spirited sharing of true, first person stories told, not read, circling loosely around a theme. May's theme is Shifting Gears. You'll have to be there to know where the stories take us.
