Expanding Ideas: Words into Poems and Artists Books with Bertha Rogers
Before poets could read and write, they spoke their poems, and they drew and carved on available surfaces. When the monks began copying holy texts, they weren’t satisfied with words only; they began illuminating the manuscripts with both sacred and profane drawings and paintings. William Blake was famous for his poems rich with watercolors. What we call “outsider art” frequently features words and images. – B. Rogers
HFWW presents Winter Workshops
Three of Hobart Festival of Women Writers’ most outstanding workshop instructors will conduct special zoom classes.
Hobart Festival of Women Writers Virtual Flash Readings
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 assisted by Amber Gray. These videos were aired via Zoom on Saturday, September 12th and 13th, 2020.
Announcing Festival 2020
We have poets, fiction writers, essayists, dramatists, and artists. Join us for this special weekend of readings, workshops, a public conversation and, of course, book sales.
Spotlight: Words & Images
It was a childhood of inspiration and creativity. Some summers were spent in the mountains of upstate New York, helping my grandmother at the tourist home she owned on Main Street waiting tables and hanging crisp white sheets on the line, singing and entertaining guests after dinner. At college, I had the opportunity to spend my junior year in Siena, Italy. My early experiences gave me exposure to a world of creative minds and alternative life styles.

Hobart Festival of Women Writers Inaugural Calendar
“And that is why, every year, there is a season
of sadness, the hurricanes, in Great Water. They begin as
thunderstorms off the west coast of our world
They follow the path of the bones.”
