This is the blog of inkberry, a literary arts nonprofit in North Adams, Massachusetts. Here’s our mission statement:
Inkberry promotes the literary arts in the Berkshires with events and community partnerships that celebrate writing and reading.
We offer regular writing workshops in our physical home (an office which we share with Northern Berkshire Creative Arts on the second floor of Building 1 in Heritage Park in downtown North Adams.) We also have a Writers’ Resource Library, which is open on Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 1-5pm and by appointment. We offer a year-round reading series, in a variety of venues around northern Berkshire. And we have a website, naturally; our virtual home offers a range of interactive features, including generative writing exercises, areas where folks can post and critique writing, message boards, and a growing collection of reviews of MFA writing programs.
We’ve been in existence since the fall of 2000. Here‘s our archive of inkmail, the monthly e-newsletter which chronicles the unfolding adventures of our literary arts nonprofit from January 2001 through December of 2007. In 2005, we started a blog; at the tail-end of 2007, we migrated that blog to wordpress.
We’re just moving in to our new space here at WordPress, so please excuse the boxes and packing tape. We hope you’ll stick around! Drop us a comment, say hello, let us know you’re there.
