Rebecca Silver-Slayter came on as the lead organizer for the Cabot Trail Writers Festival in 2018, the festival’s 10th anniversary.
Clearly, she had no crystal ball and knew not what the future would bring, certainly not a pandemic.
The eight-day festival ran this year from September 27th, until October 4th.
After deciding not to cancel, they went with an “On-Line, On Air, and Outside” approach.
