Hedgerow poet Maya Janson will read June 19, 7 pm, at Broadside Bookshop, 247 Main Street in Northampton MA. Maya will be running the poetry panel at this year’s WriteAngles conference. David Rivard writes about Montaigne Medal finalist Janson’s work, “Wide-open love of the world and its mad inhabitants is one of the holiest of the heart’s affections – what you get in Murmur & Crush – total acceptance of the as-is world, seduced into being by that beautiful tag team, Bemusement and Sorrow.” Also reading on Wednesday evening will be Anne Love Woodhull whose Night With Its Owl is also published by Hedgerow.

Who we areWe are a group of writers living in Western Massachusetts, Southern Vermont, and thereabouts who organize and run the Write Angles conference on an entirely volunteer basis.
We are “budget-friendly”A few years ago our WriteAngles conference was featured in Writer's Digest "Conference Scene" as one of four "budget-friendly events." Our all-day conference, with continental breakfast and buffet lunch, is still quite a bargain at $100 in advance and $110 at the door (general admission), while full-time students and those age 65 and up pay only $80 in advance and $90 at the door.
