Community Partners

You are all our community. Here we give particular thanks to our neighboring arts organizations,  community-minded businesses, and the Village itself, with whom we happily partner on various events and projects.

Village of Sleepy Hollow

Sleepy Hollow is a great place to live and it’s the perfect place to run a Writers Center. Along the Hudson, following the legacy of Washington Irving’s legend, and with the support of our Village administration, we thrive! Thank you to Sleepy Hollow for your full support.

Nature-based literature has inspired generations of environmental advocates and conservationists. From Thoreau’s Walden to Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, nature writing helps connect us with our environment. The “Writing Nature Series” features environmentally-themed book recommendations and live readings by nature writers at Teatown Reservation in Ossining and the HVWC.
