Founded by Nicole Santalucia, the project educates youth and adults on how to write and read creatively. Our mission is to enhance art awareness and literacy in Broome County and to connect the University with Broome County citizens through poetry.
We also provide leadership positions for Creative Writing PhD students and expand 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!
