DESCRIPTION

Poetry. Fiction. Cultural Writing. On a wintry January evening in 1992, in a hilltop house in the Catskill Mountain region of New York, a reading series began. That series, Word Thursdays, and its subsequent affiliates–the annual Speaking the Words Poets and Writers Tour and Festival, the Share the Words Catskill High-School Poets and Writers Forum, Workshop, and Competition, and Radio by Writers, have hosted more than six hundred established and emerging poets and writers from New York and other states and, through Bright Hill Press, published their poetry and prose. This collection celebrates those vibrant voices.
