    Join us for a night of poetry, stories, and literary magic under the full moon, featuring a lineup of local writers! PVWW Founder / Director Joy Baglio will host this nighttime literary/art walk at Park Hill Orchard in Easthampton MA, where we will journey together - with flashlights, lanterns, and live musical interludes - through the orchard’s Art in the Orchard exhibit, which showcases an eclectic array of art installations positioned at intervals  throughout the fields. We’ll stop at select sculptures, where - illuminated by flashlights and moonlight - our featured local authors will read from original work. 

    Please note the NEW DATE for this event is Sunday October 1 (7-9pm)! Unfortunately we had to reschedule due to an almost definite forecast of rain this Friday (as well as on our former rain date of Saturday). But the good news is that Sunday 10/1 looks blissfully nice and WARM, and the event will happen then as planned! We look forward to seeing you at Park Hill Orchard in Easthampton then!

    Featured Writers: 
    Joy Baglio • Chris Boucher • Sarah Jane Cody •  Alejandro Cuellar • Carolyn Cushing • Melenie Freedom Flynn • Tzynya Pinchback • Rachel Teferet • Carolyn Zaikowski.

    Live Music:
    Daring Coyotes (David Clark Carroll)

    Preparation:

    - Attendees should wear walking shoes and be prepared to stand (and walk through farm fields) for the full 2-hour journey through the orchard. Because the ground may be wet in some places, rain boots, hiking boots, or other waterproof shoes are recommended.

    - Bring flashlights, LED lanterns, glow sticks, or other (non-flame) lights to carry with you on the walk! We will have some LED lanterns and flashlights on hand to borrow, but we may not have enough, so bring them if you have them!

    - You may want to carry a portable/folding chair with you, if you'd like to sit throughout the walk. We will be pausing for 5-minute readings at various sculptures throughout the orchard, and there will be no seating (except the grass) at these points.

    Accessibility: 

    This event, by its very nature, involves standing/walking, in the dark, through uneven fields for roughly 2 hours. It is not advised that anyone with difficulty walking and/or balance attempt this walk. We will be pausing for 5-minute readings at various sculptures throughout the orchard, and there will be no seating (except the grass) at these points. There will be VERY limited transportation around the orchard (in a cart) for no more than a handful of folks who cannot otherwise walk that distance, and if you'd like to "reserve" one of these spots for someone, please email joy@pioneervalleywriters.org. 

    Date: Sunday, October 1 (7 - 9pm)*
    *This is the new date of the event, rescheduled due to rain forecast.

    We will be sending reminders and more details to those who RSVP!

    FEATURED WRITERS

    CAROLYN ZAIKOWSKI, in human earthling terms, is a fiction writer, essayist, poet, writing teacher, death doula, and vegan feminist mutineer with an unglued anarchabody who accidentally came to this planet via the wrong spacetime wormhole while trying to figure out the nature of spacetime wormholes, and is now walking around with a permanent furrowed brow, staring at flowers, utterly awe-filled and confounded and horrified and enchanted by the spectacle.

    TZYNYA PINCHBACK is a disabled mermaid writing the Black woman body in nature, in illness, and in joy as a deliberate act. She is not magic, but maybe a little. Her chapbook, “How to make pink confetti”, was selected for the Dancing Girl Press reading series for women poets in 2012, and her poems appear in various print and online publications. Tzynya lives with a queer narwhal and a turtle inside a teacup on a pond.

    CHRISTOPHER BOUCHER is the author of the novels How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive, Golden Delicious and Big Giant Floating Head (a 2019 Massachusetts Book Award Finalist).

    LIVE MUSIC

    DARING COYOTES was born under the high deserts winter moon in Joshua Tree as David Clark Carroll coaxed notes out of his mandolin to the howls of coyotes. A hard driving progressive bluegrass band frequently performing as a trio and occasionally as a quartet, 2019 saw Daring Coyotes hit stages all over Northern California culminating in a short tour along the Humboldt coast. In 2021 David moved home to Massachusetts to be closer to family, and in November of 2021 released the album Odyssey of the Far West. Over the next two years Daring Coyotes has graced stages from Berkshire Busk's Railroad St stage, Timberyard Brewing, Black Birch Vineyard, Bright Ideas Brewing, Northampton’s Summer on Strong music series and many more. He performs both solo and with various configurations of his string band."  I'm @daringcoyotes just about everywhere and daringcoyotes.com has all my links.  Much appreciated, glad we had a chance to chat last night even if I was incredibly distracted by the mind blowing music.

Join us for a night of poetry, stories, and literary magic under the full moon, featuring a lineup of local writers! PVWW Founder / Director Joy Baglio will host this nighttime literary/art walk at Park Hill Orchard in Easthampton MA, where we will journey together - with flashlights, lanterns, and live musical interludes - through the orchard’s Art in the Orchard exhibit, which showcases an eclectic array of art installations positioned at intervals  throughout the fields. We’ll stop at select sculptures, where - illuminated by flashlights and moonlight - our featured local authors will read from original work. 

    Please note the NEW DATE for this event is Sunday October 1 (7-9pm)! Unfortunately we had to reschedule due to an almost definite forecast of rain this Friday (as well as on our former rain date of Saturday). But the good news is that Sunday 10/1 looks blissfully nice and WARM, and the event will happen then as planned! We look forward to seeing you at Park Hill Orchard in Easthampton then!

    Preparation:

    - Attendees should wear walking shoes and be prepared to stand (and walk through farm fields) for the full 2-hour journey through the orchard. Because the ground may be wet in some places, rain boots, hiking boots, or other waterproof shoes are recommended.

    - Bring flashlights, LED lanterns, glow sticks, or other (non-flame) lights to carry with you on the walk! We will have some LED lanterns and flashlights on hand to borrow, but we may not have enough, so bring them if you have them!

    - You may want to carry a portable/folding chair with you, if you'd like to sit throughout the walk. We will be pausing...
