Hilltown Families


Calling all Amherst-based poets! Original poems can be submitted to this month’s Eyes Are the Window poetry contest, created to select poems for a public art display in Boltwood Walk.

Young writers are invited to submit their work to Odyssey Bookshop’s annual Children’s Writing Contest! Stories submitted should be original, and must be created following the contest’s creative and original prompt. Time to start brainstorming!

As fall darkens and begins to give way to winter, our hibernation instincts begin to kick in, inspiring us to hunker down and spend more time inside. While it’s sad to give up the long, bright days, there’s no reason not to make the best of the darkness! Families can spend November writing, by participating in either 30 Poems in November or National Novel Writing Month – two writing projects that challenge participants to create a large amount of new work throughout the month.
