The Berkshire Immigrant Center is seeking immigrant women who would like to share their stories as part of the Berkshire Festival of Woman Writers.

BIC will sponsor a series of writing workshops in January at Williams College with the final dates to be determined by the availability of the participants.

The stories will be compiled into a booklet to be distributed and read at a public forum in March.

Greta Phinney, who has successfully conducted writing workshops both in Pittsfield and abroad with English as a second language adults, will lead the workshop and prepare readers to write and share their stories.

Interested women should contact the Berkshire Immigrant Center at (413) 445-4881 or
