For those of you unfamiliar with WordXWord, it is my favorite open-to-the-public thing in the Berkshires.* They do events year-round, but the culmination is always a week-long festival in August. This year it's from the 16th-22nd, and as always, if you live or visit in or near the Berkshires, I highly recommend it. The visiting poets are always phenomenal (Past performers include Taylor Mali, Anis Mojgani, and Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz). If you have spare cash but no spare time, you can donate to them on the site as well, but you are seriously missing out if you do not show up at the festival, and it is all entirely free.

Tonight I secured myself a spot in the story slam semifinals by telling a story about [livejournal.com profile] squirrelhaven which happened roughly a decade ago. If you are interested, the basic story is told here. There are also two more storyslam qualifying rounds over the next two weeks (details at wxw365.org) in case anyone ([livejournal.com profile] bayleaf? [livejournal.com profile] galorette?) wanted to go tell stories there or just watch. I won't be at those, but I will be showing up for as much of the August festival week as possible.

*(My friends, naturally, remain my favorites overall.)
