The Poetry & Fiction Series at Bard College at Simon’s Rock returns to campus this spring, always free open to all — readings will take place in-person on Thursdays at 7 p.m. in Blodgett House on the college campus.

“We’ve had Pulitzer Prize winners, National Book Award winners, Guggenheim Fellows, MacArthur genius grant winners, and rising literary stars whose work just continues to find new readers around the world. And this doesn’t happen in a big auditorium—the readings take place in the Blodgett House living room, where we can have real conversations with the writers. The students always ask great questions, and the writers often tell me that they’re blown away by how deeply engaged the students are with the writers’ work,” said Brendan Mathews, Dean of Faculty and Curriculum Development and Associate Professor of Creative Writing and Literature, coordinator for the series.

Authors in the 2024 Poetry & Fiction Series include Tiana Clark, Alexis Schaitkin, Ama Codjoe and Paul Yoon.

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.
