Noepe Center For The Literary Arts
Noepe Center is a 501(c3) nonprofit organization seeking to advance the appreciation of and passion for the literary arts in adults and young people through programs that support expression, education and the sharing of writing and literature.
Noepe has a very simple mission: to provide established and emerging writers with time and space to create, and the resources and community to support, encourage and inspire writers at all stages of their writing career.
Located on the island of Martha's Vineyard, Noepe Center serves as a writer's residency, a writing retreat center, workshop space, a place of learning and creativity, and as a community in support of writing and the literary arts, and venue for readings, author talks, and other literary events.
The name for the center comes from the Wampanoag name for the Martha's Vineyard which means, land between the currents. We see this island and the work of the center as a still place, a place of refuge, a sanctuary from which great writing will emerge.
To date Noepe and its residency program has provided time and space to over 150 writers across every genre, hosted readings by poets and writers such as Billy Collins, Marie Howe, Naomi Shihab Nye, Jennifer Clement, Fanny Howe and many more. More than thirty novels, books of poetry, plays, screenplays, memoirs and works of non-fiction have been published by our residency alumni, as well as countless articles and anthologized stories and poems.

Somerville Symphony Orkestar
Blossoming from the Slavic heart of Greater Boston, the Somerville Symphony Orkestar is an all-original Eastern European Punk Funk band. Formed in 2009, the SSO has been constantly gaining notice from many of the music scenes in and around New England. With the success of their first album, the SSO has opened for such bands as the Rebirth Brass Band, the Stepkids, and Dudu Tassa & the Kuwaitis. They have also performed at many of New England's Festivals including Jerry Jam, Boston's First Night, and the Somerville Artbeat Festival.
Raised by a pack of gypsy badgers, band leader Joel Edinberg wrote the first SSO song after waking up in the middle of a random Tuesday night. Checking the next morning to see if the song was any good, he realized it was his duty to further form the band. After meeting guitarist and space cowboy Travis Pullman along with his buddy and former dictator, Richey Tally, the new team traveled the world to find the best musicians. Searching the mountains of Nepal, the rivers of the Amazon, and hitching a ride on Curiosity, the three eventually found the final musicians who would complete the amazing circus that is the SSO. Finally reaching out to Belarus, Syracuse, and some random rooftop; Matt Ellis, Pete Fanelli, and Gabriel Solomon all joined in after some serious musical persuasion
