NOTE: It is strongly recommended that you save event descriptions and presenter biographies in a separate text file, then cut and paste into the form below.


  • Please list your personal and/or organizational website address(es)
    Check all that apply
  • Please describe what you have in mind.
  • A more complete description will help our selection committee envision your event.
  • Biographies should be no more than 100 words each, including website URLs.
  • The Festival is now hosting events year-round! There will also be an intensive Festival week March 12 - 20. Please give us at least two dates you'd be interested in participating, and if you have co-presenters, make sure of their availability.
  • Most Festival sessions run 90 minutes to two hours but we will also consider proposals for longer writing workshops and retreats.
  • Do you envision an intimate workshop or a lecture for 100, or something in-between? Let us know.
  • Let us know if you already have a venue lined up, or need help finding one. Or let us know if you have a preferred town or area of Berkshire County or environs.
    *All ticketed events under the Festival banner must contribute at least 30% of ticket sales to the Festival.
    The Festival is a collaborative effort; presenters are encouraged to publicize their own events as well as the Festival as a whole.
