The Berkshire Festival of Women Writers  inspires, nourishes and strengthens women’s creative voices by offering stimulating workshops and events year-round designed to encourage women and girls to engage with one another and their communities, and develop as creative leaders.

For the past six years, hundreds of women writers of all ages, from teens to seniors, have participated in the annual Berkshire Festival of Women Writers, held in March, Women’s History Month, featuring workshops, readings, performances and screenings at venues throughout Berkshire County MA and the adjacent Berkshire region.

Starting with the 2016-17 season, we are embarking on a new year-round collaborative model, inviting proposals for events featuring women writers to be held under the Festival banner at any time of year. Please see the event proposal submission guidelines for more information.

Sign up for our e-newsletter to receive regular updates on our programming.

The BFWW is a non-profit under the interim fiscal sponsorship of the Sandisfield Arts Center. Please support our efforts in any way you can—there are so many ways to get involved, from volunteering to becoming business sponsor or Friend of the Festival.  We can’t do it without you!
