The Pioneer Valley Muse Group
About The Pioneer Valley Muse Group
The Pioneer Valley Muse Group grew out of a workshop in the Spring of 2011 with English poet and Bothmer gymnast Paul Matthews, called Hermes Moves Among Words. We spent a weekend in March exploring the connection between language and movement in fresh and playful ways—writing together, tossing bean bags, balancing poles on our fingers, and laughing a lot. A clear message that came out of that workshop was that exploring the various arts within a supportive community of like-minded people is a joyous and transformative experience. It’s a great way to cultivate the life of the imagination, connect with others, and discover new possibilities for future endeavors. By working together to produce our own events, we are able to bring exciting cultural activities to our area for a fraction of the cost of going to a retreat center. Plus, we can put the gifts and talents of our members to good use in ways that lead to a stronger sense of community. The Pioneer Valley Muse group continues to transform itself according to the needs and wishes of those who participate. All are welcome!

Here's a picture of our beloved British poetry guru, Paul Matthews.
As you can see, he's always got a twinkle in his eye and a witty grin just below the surface of his English reserve!
