NYS Summer Writers Institute events this week

Summer goes by oh so fast. The third and final week of our NYS Summer Writers Institute at Skidmore College begins at 7 p.m. this evening with fiction writer Dana Johnson (Break Any Woman Down, Elsewhere, California) and novelist-memoirist Danzy Senna.


Remember this summer, you can watch these readings/talks via Zoom.


Public readings will be held 7 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays through July 22.

Use this Zoom link for each reading. Registration is not required.


Best wishes to our friends and colleagues at Skidmore College, especially Professor Robert Boyers, who founded the NYS Summer Writers Institute. Let's all hope for a return to in-person events at the 2022 NYS Summer Writers Institute.
