Countdown to Spring (Day 11): Woodstock Writers Festival

It’s festival season — but we’re not talking about music. This year’s Woodstock Writers Festival, moderated by author Martha Frankel, features a Story Slam inspired by the children’s book When the Wind Blows. Everyone is welcome to attend, either as a participant or a spectator. (Participants can bring stories under three-and-a-half minutes, which will be judged by author Hester Mundis, WDST deejay Greg Gattine, and writer Kitty Sheehan.) Admission includes wine and beer.
