The Binghamton Poetry Project is a literary service program of the Binghamton Center for Writers at Binghamton University.
Founded by Nicole Santalucia in 2012, 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.
We also provide leadership positions for Creative Writing Ph.D. 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 Earlville Opera House’s Decentralized Grants Program, a re-grant program of the NYS Council on the Arts, with support from Governor Cuomo and the NYS Legislature. Additional support for Broome County is provided by the Stewart W. & Wilma C. Hoyt Foundation. Funding is also provided by a project grant from the Broome County Arts Council’s United Cultural Fund. The Binghamton Poetry Project is also grateful for support from the Binghamton Center for Writers, the Harpur College Dean’s Office, Binghamton University’s English Department, the Broome County Public Library through the Library Fund from the Community Foundation of South Central NY.
