CATA’s Annual Poetry Reading features a dynamic selection of poetry and prose from the CATA Writers’ Workshop, shining a light on the common experiences that connect us all.

Since 2005, writers with disabilities have explored creative and expressive forms through CATA’s weekly Writers’ Workshop, developing their talents in poetry, haiku, autobiography, and short stories. CATA’s writing faculty offers an inventive curriculum to help writers tap into their own style, with prompts aimed at amplifying each individual’s voice. As needed, some CATA writers work with “scribes” to help them put their ideas on paper.

Sponsored in part by Berkshire Magazine, Canyon Ranch, Massachusetts Cultural Council, and generous supporters like you.
