Please join us for a reading with Stone Court Writer-In-Residence Phoebe Bright. Phoebe will read from her recent works, and there will be an opportunity for questions and conversation following the program, along with a reception.
Phoebe McIlwain Bright holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Oregon, where she taught Creative Writing, English Composition, and Humanities and was a 2014 recipient of the Penny Wilkes Scholarship for Writing and the Environment. She is currently working on a linked short story collection that follows three generations of a family living in Oregon's western Cascades. She has worked in the area and undeterred by cougar sightings - one night from a distance of only thirty feet - camped there for several months. As the Stone Court Writer-in-Residence, she has spent the fall in Stockbridge, writing and teaching a creative writing workshop at the Berkshire Waldorf High School.
