WXW Poets Creating Conversation: Gender In America, March 26, 7P at the Berkshire Museum

Poets Creating Conversation

Gender in America

March 26, 7P
Berkshire Museum, 39 South Street, Pittsfield

Slice it and dice it anyway you like. Whether you're talking about identity; equity and parity; privilege or pronouns; harassment or assault; cis, trans or non - we all live in, around or beside gender. By sharing personal stories, observations, moments of inspiration, and hope, we look to create a broad poetic tapestry with a goal that the resulting “conversation” between creative voices will make us stronger and help us find a way forward. Information for poets interested in sharing their work.

Poets Creating Conversation is a three-part series that asks poets to help us unpack and navigate through issues that we are all inexorably wrapped in. Expect hard truths and humor; cautionary tales and inspirational stories all rolled into a fast paced program.
