Local Writers Series

Join us in celebrating and supporting the talented writers in our community. Our Local Writers Series is a quarterly reading that takes place in person at the Hudson Valley Writers Center. Readers are each given 25 minutes to read from their work, ending with a collective Q&A. Copies of the featured work will be available for purchase. Readings are free and open to the public.

Register for our July 12, 2024 Local Writers Reading featuring Bonnie Jill Emanuel, Martin Torgoff, and Gillian Lynn Katz.
