Hobart Festival of Women Writers Virtual Flash Readings

The 8th Annual Hobart Festival of Women Writers was cancelled in April due to Covid-19. We had chosen our 2020 Participating Writers and were looking forward to their readings and workshops, as well as, a special panel discussion on the weekend of September 11, 12 &13th. We were very disappointed at the loss of our in-person Festival. In order to preserve our platform celebrating women authors, we created our first Virtual Flash Readings. Forty writers participated by recording themselves reading their work. The videos were combined into two seamless, beautiful videos by Jessica Vecchione of VECC Videography http://www.veccvideography.net who was assisted by Amber Gray. These videos were aired via Zoom on Saturday, September 12th and Sunday, September 13th, 2020.

EJ Antonio, Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Ellen Meeropol, Cheryl Boyce Taylor, Denise B. Dailey, Esther Cohen, Nancy K. Bereano, and Cheryl Clarke

    Hi Breena. I just got off of the webinar for the National Association of Poetry Therapy. I am Sage the woman who handled questions. I am a writer. My poetry book is titled “Earth is a Mother’s Hood’”


    1. Thank you, Sage. I’m glad you were with us. It was a pleasure to meet you. I know you are at some distance from us, but maybe you’ll are able to come to the Festival in 2021. Please send me your email address so I can put it on our list.
