Poets Creating Conversation

Berkshire Museum, 39 South Street, Pittsfield, MA

Whether it's two steps forward, one step back, or one step forward and two steps back, we’ve challenged poets to blow out the candle that’s burning at both ends and shake our collective soul.

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.
