About By the Way Berkshires

By the Way Berkshires is a digital guide to Western Massachusetts. This is a rare place, real country with intense creative energy, and BTW is a map made of storytelling and conversations.

It’s also an arts and events calendar for the region — art, music and theater and dance. It will walk up trails and into restaurants.

My name is Kate Abbott, and I'm a freelance writer. I write about the creative community growing here. I'll look at what’s going on here that gets under the surface, close enough to show what an artist feels or an event feels like.

I'm one person, keeping this website going in my free time because I love this place, an you're welcome to come with me.
Goals
6 of 500 patrons
When I reach 500 patrons, I'll hire an intern to tell more stories and encourage an emerging writer in the Berkshires.
