50% of the overall budget goes to paying writers

Above all else, ACW values the power of words and stories. This By Local section features the writing news of ACW Members, blogs from local writers, writer resources, and the Adirondack Literary Map that provides a map of writing and reading groups, writing retreats, residencies and more. This section is for you, by you.

Let ACW know about your writing news, blog, or writing and reading groups at info@adirondackcenterforwriting.org.

You might be at home, but you are not alone.

What remains during these tense times is ACW’s commitment to building spaces for healing together. Through weekly writing prompts and posted responses, new online classes, and the online display of PoemVillage, ACW is continuing to bring together community members like you during isolation and uncertainty.

Keeping ACW strong in these tense times now rests in the hands of faithful supporters like you. So, you are invited to give a gift today. The recommended giving amount is $5 a month. All gifts are significant in keeping ACW alive and well, so when this is all over ACW will be ready to re-launch the important programming you count on.
