Flavors of America

Poets Creating Conversation

Berkshire Museum, 39 South Street, Pittsfield, MA

Poets are asked to reflect - metaphorically, figuratively, or perhaps literally - on all of the “flavors” of America. Poet? Find out how you can participate.

Poets Creating Conversation challenges poets to circle loosely around a theme or issue to create a broad, multi-dimensional “conversation” between poems, poets, and audience.
