The Manton Study Center for Works on Paper invites writers of all experience and skill levels to be inspired by thematic selections from the Clark’s collection of works on paper.

January’s theme, “Through the Lens of a Portrait,” includes prints, drawings, and photographs of sitters whose stories beg to be revealed. Whether it’s poetry or prose, fiction or non-, and a story-in-progress or something completely new, allow the works to inspire your writing.

Basic materials are provided. Writers bringing their own supplies should note that only graphite pencils are allowed in the Study Center.

The event is free, the museum says, but space is limited, so you’ll need to save yours ahead.

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.
