Come join us on Thursday, February 4, from 4:30pm - 5:30pm ET to hear more about the 2021-2022 DIAL/SELF AmeriCorps Program!
DIAL/SELF helps young people become independent by connecting them with housing, employment, education and civic opportunities. We believe that all youth possess unique strengths which are enhanced by community support and collaboration and that all youth should have the right to exercise choice in their own lives.
We are a community-based non-profit agency that has been serving the youth and communities of Western MA since 1977. We provide a wide array of services that foster youth empowerment and community service. Over the course of the last four decades, more than 38,000 area youth have been served by the agency in Franklin, Hampshire and Hampden Counties and the North Quabbin Region.

Join us for a virtual independent residency in creative writing. Modeled on writers’ and artists’ colonies like MacDowell, Yaddo and the Provincetown Fine Arts Workshop, this program offers you the opportunity to devote attention to your fiction, poetry, dramatic writing or creative nonfiction in a supportive environment. Participants will have opportunities for collaborative structured writing and the freedom to choose between social and independent writing each day. Participants are welcome to work on either new or existing projects. And for participants seeking guidance, instruction or simply feedback on their work, we'll offer one-on-one mentoring sessions with program leaders. At the end of the program, we'll come together for a virtual community reading, during which we'll share work produced during the residency. We will meet via Zoom and Google docs from 1pm to 4pm (EST) on February 3rd-5th and February 8th and 9th. The residency is led by writing center associates Roy Andrews and Emily Merriman.
