Nathalie Thill, Executive Director


Nathalie is no average director. She’s a fantastic storyteller and a dynamic host and workshop facilitator. She’s always ready to chat about your options for publishing, tips for telling that tale, and knows the next book you’ll fall in love with. She’s been with the organization since its infancy, nearly 20 years. All the things you love about ACW are the product of Nathalie’s work and vision. At the heart of everything she does is a belief in incorporating community, diversity, and inclusion.

Baylee joined us in the fall of 2015 and turned ACW into the family it is today. Little did we know when we hired her based on her expertise in events and marketing, that she would be the glue that binds our far-flung Adirondack community. Baylee walks into any room and befriends everyone there, walking up to perfect strangers to talk about anything and everything. This is more than just a job, and her love and commitment to our mission comes through in everything she does. We are so thankful to have such a talented, warm-hearted person on our team.

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 of any amount. 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.
