New York State Summer Writers Institute

Saratoga Springs has been the summer home of the Summer Writers Institute since 1988. The New York State Summer Writers Institute, co-sponsored with the Office of the Dean for Special Programs at Skidmore College, consists of two and four-week workshops in fiction, playwriting and screenwriting, poetry, editing, and translation. These fee-based workshops, which may be taken for college credit, are augmented by nightly readings by nearly 50 faculty and guest visiting writers. The evening readings are free and open to the public.
