September 27 and 28 Join us and other fellow writers in exploring and celebrating PLACE, with Cape Ann as a microcosm of the global macrocosm. The festival will be looking at what shapes our progressive futurewithout losing “grounding” in our cultural roots and the history we grow out of. We will develop our personal connection with the “geography of our being”—the place in which we live, work, and create, whetherthat place is Cape Ann or beyond. It is what poet Vincent Ferrini referredto as the “Holy Local,” a lens through which to look at the world.The Dogtown Writers Festival is an event that the Gloucester Writers Center has designed to provide multiple creative opportunities for writing in unique venues, ensuring that all voices are heard.
