This page will be related to activities of the Watkins Glen Writers Group that I facilitate because of my passion for creative writing, literature and the arts. The Finger Lakes Region of New York State has many world class poets, authors and artists and I am always willing to help promote the opportunities to any one interested.
The Watkins Writers Group generally meets on the fourth Monday of each month at a local venue near Watkins Glen NY and features local poets, writers, and literary events. The sessions usually start at 7:00 pm. after an opportunity to get a snack and beverage from the sponsoring venue and for conversation and networking. An open reading follows each featured reading after a short break.
Events are funded in part by Poets & Writers, Inc with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. They are open to the public and all people are welcome to attend and contribute to the group.
