The Hudson Valley Writers Center brings writers and readers together to celebrate the essential art of the written and spoken word. The Center fosters a vibrant literary arts community that supports and empowers writers and readers of diverse ages, talents and backgrounds at every stage of their creative development.

We are committed to ensuring our programming is accessible to as many people as possible through our pay-what-you-can reading series, scholarship initiatives, and ongoing engagement with the members of our growing local and virtual communities.
