Airing This Summer on CTSB
Berkshire Festival of Women Writers

Community Television for the Southern Berkshires (CTSB) announces a collaboration with the Berkshire Festival of Women Writers (BFWW) to bring several events of the Festival’s successful Fifth Anniversary Season of women’s writing events to community television and online.

CTSB volunteers Wendy Germain, Wendy Casey, and Deb Koffman have been working with BFWW Multimedia Coordinator, Lynnette (Lucy) Najimy to record? and produce BFWW shows for broadcast on CTSB and the Berkshire Women Writers and CTSB Vimeo Channels. Events will include "Sustainable Happiness with Sarah van Gelder," "Permission to Write with Dani Shapiro," "A Writers Life with Mary Pope Osborne" and other talks, readings, and performances of varying lengths.  

The Berkshire Festival of Women Writers is currently in preproduction of a CTSB series, “What Matters: Conversations on Creativity and Leadership,” which will air monthly beginning in Fall 2016. 

“We are so grateful to CTSB for providing a tremendous community resource that allows us to bring our Berkshire-grown women’s creativity to wider audiences,” said Jennifer Browdy, founding director of the Berkshire Festival of Women Writers.
