STRAW DOG: a starting place; an idea or story or project whose elements take initial form and are rearranged many times in a process of exploration, revision and discovery.

The New York Times called the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts


.…the most author-saturated, book-cherishing,

literature-celebrating place in the nation.


We embrace this legacy, and strive to sustain it through Straw Dog Writers Guild: a literary hub for writers, readers, and literature-lovers in Western Massachusetts.
