AMHERST — From Friday to Sunday, the annual Juniper Literary Festival is coming back to town. The festival, hosted by the UMass MFA Program for Poets and Writers, provides events all weekend long.

The event is open to the public at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The festival is sponsored by the Mass Cultural Council which has provided an ambitious lineup of events for the weekend.

It is time to celebrate the region’s literary community with both the national and international literary world. Workshops will be hosted by UMass MFA faculty, alumni and current students involved in the program including writer Edie Meidav and essayist Ocean Vuong.

UMass Press editors Matt Becker and Mary Dougherty will take part in panels along with literary agents. There is also time to sit back, relax and enjoy poetic performances by Jelal Huyler and other local actors presenting versions of poetry and fiction.

The event hopes to bring the MFA community together in a region where the arts are prominent. Most events will be hosted in South College, a newly renovated building at Umass Amherst.
