[wptabtitle] About Us[/wptabtitle]
Hello – and welcome to Main Street Writers
My purpose in creating Main Street Writers is to build a Community of Practice for writers. I’m deeply interested in writing, reading, exploration and discovery; in travel as an extension of that exploration; and in Slow Culture in general. It’s kind of a dirt road approach to living.
I’ve led Main Street Writers workshops for over 20 years; my writing appears in literary journals, magazines, and anthologies. I have also run a public high school writing lab for eight years; served as Poet in Residence at Jackson Street School in Northampton; and served as a consultant to the Mass Migrant Education program.
I’m a writer and a teacher, and I invite people who like to write, and people who would like to try writing, to join in this ongoing process of discovery.
