Berkshire Festival of Women Writers


Thank you to Jennifer Browdy of Simon's Rock for creating Berkshire Festival of Women Writers
 that's in its third year. So many community connections, workshops and performances have taken place and the festival continues to grow.
It's an honor to be a part of it again and I'm excited to be in two different performances

The format for Karaoke Confession, a performance that I created for the first festival was an interactive guided /musical tour of the Rockwell Museum that explored the theme of forgiveness with Rockwell's paintings as the focal point and local poets and dancers assigned a painting.
Last year the theme was trust; this year's theme is
