What is The Binghamton Poetry Project?
The Binghamton Poetry Project (BPP)
is a literary service program of the Binghamton Center for Writers at Binghamton University. Founded by Nicole Santalucia in 2011, the project supports and coaches adults, teens and kids in reading and writing poems in workshops that are free and open to the public. Our mission is to increase literary engagement and to strengthen the Broome County poetry community, while connecting the university and its students with county residents. In addition to open poetry workshops for adults, The Binghamton Poetry Project offers workshops to English-language learners through the American Civic Association and to Binghamton public school students enrolled in the Mentor NOW program.
We also provide leadership positions for Creative Writing graduate students and advance the efforts of the Binghamton Center for Writers. We are working to enhance the artistic and creative life of the community at large.
On this website, you can find schedules for the current workshops and contact information for any questions you may have. Under “Blog,” you will find fun writing tips and more from our very own workshop participants and interns!
The Binghamton Poetry Project is made possible with public funds from the Decentralization (DEC) Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature, and administered by The Earlville Opera House. Additional support for the Broome DEC Program is graciously provided by the Stewart W. and Willma C. Hoyt Foundation, Inc. Funding is also provided in part by a project grant from the Broome County Arts Council’s United Cultural Fund. Binghamton University’s English Department and the Binghamton Center for Writers give additional support.
