THE CENTER FOR THE LITERARY ARTS IN NEW YORK STATE
New York State Summer Writers Institute
Each summer during the month of July the Writers Institute moves its
program to the Skidmore College campus in Saratoga Springs, NY for a series
of creative writing courses and free public readings. This month-long program
features courses in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Students may enroll
for either two week blocks or for the entire four week season.
Under the joint auspices of the Office of the Dean of Special Programs
at Skidmore College and the New
York State Writers Institute.
The Summer Writers Institute offers courses for undergraduate and
graduate credit, as well as noncredit courses. An extraordinary
staff of critically-acclaimed, award-winning authors serve as Institute
faculty members. Standard three-hour class meetings, three days
each week, are supplemented by a series of Tuesday and Thursday
afternoon discussions with visiting writers and other special events.
Other distinguished writers-in-residence read book-length poetry
or nonfiction manuscripts and offer advice for revisions and eventual
publication submissions (additional fees charged). The program
also offers public readings by visiting and staff writers Monday
through Friday evenings. Weekend programs include publishing symposia,
panel discussions, and student readings.
