Milne Public Library, 1095 Main St., Williamstown, 1 p.m.

Writers are invited to entertain the gathering with a short piece in poetry or prose (500 words maximum)—fiction or non-fiction, humorous or serious—about that subject most vital to our personal pleasure and planetary health: FOOD.   Some suggestions to stimulate your creative juices:  a restaurant review; a personal culinary passion; an exotic (or dismal) dining experience; an imagined last meal; portrait of a chef; a dieter’s journey; a food plan for health in hard times.  Leave us with a pungent taste of your style and a vivid memory of your subject.  If you would like to read your work, telephone 413-664-0167 or email by February 25, 2014.
