February 22 @ 7:00 pm

Politics of Identity: Poetry of Inclusion and Exclusion, a program of work by poets spanning ages and styles, 3 p.m. Nov. 12. Who gets to belong? Who gets to decide? Poets answer this challenge from whatever direction they choose, and the program may contain explicit material. along with Setsuko Winchester’s Freedom From Fear/Yellow Bowl Project free at the MCLA’s Gallery 51, 51 Main St., North Adams.

WordxWord presents a free evening of ‘poems that fit on a dime and some that don’t’ at the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts. The number of the day is 10. What could possibly go wrong when you stir a pot full of poets and bring it to a slow boil? WordXWord turns up the heat to find out.

10 Words is part of the 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival, a city-wide festival of dozens of events, in partnership with Mill Town Foundation. Equal parts art and community, WordXWord is where words go to be heard.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
