To the editor of THE EAGLE:
I’d like to publicly thank Greylock Federal Credit Union for sponsoring the WordXWord festival in Pittsfield last week. With eight nights of stories, poetry, and improv acting by some of the most talented, funny, and energetic artists I’ve ever seen, this free festival is a gold mine.
Jim Benson and many others are to be lauded for creating this labor of love. Each of the five featured poets they brought in from New York, Chicago, Texas, and Albany was a world-class talent, and the many locals that also participated -- from teenagers to seasoned poetry veterans -- were tremendous.
Kudos to all who made this joyous celebration of the spoken word happen.
