To the editor:

In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, WordXWord has invited poets to present work that reflects on, is inspired by, or otherwise connects with the legacy of Dr. King. This event will be held on January 15, 7 p.m. at the Berkshire Museum, 39 South St., Pittsfield, Massachusetts. Admission is free.

WordXWord encourages poets to accept a greater role in the cultural landscape, to provoke and bear witness, to use their voice to advocate for social justice, to act as agents of change, and to add their voices in celebration of the full potential of the human spirit. The celebration of Dr King’s life’s work offers the perfect moment to put this into practice.
