Jacqueline Sheehan, who has long been associated with our WriteAngles conference, will read from her latest book, The Tiger in the House, Tuesday evening, April 4, in Northampton MA.
We are very pleased to have lined up two dynamic speakers for this year’s WriteAngles conference, Randy Susan Meyers and Breena Clarke.
Once we have confirmed all the details of our program we will be posting further information. If you subscribe to this site, you will receive notices of the schedule, panels, and agents via e-mail.
Also, as we begin to publicize the conference, we want to extend a big “thank you” to Ryan Sheffield, who kindly let us use artwork from his Authors Series on our promotional bookmarks, one of which is shown here.
VOICES CARRY performance group
Voices Carry (formerly Voices from Inside/Out) offers performances and readings designed to bring the stories of incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women to the public. Voices Carry presentations feature women from minimum-security facilities or women who have been released into the community. Each performance is followed by Q&A.
Since its launch in the fall of 2004, we have performed at venues all over Western Massachusetts, including colleges and universities, local arts centers, churches, and conference centers. We have also performed at local fundraising events, professional development and writing conferences, poetry slams, and more. If you would like to schedule a Voices Carry performance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
