The YMCA's Downtown Writers Center

The YMCA's Downtown Writers Center is the CNY region's only community center for the literary arts, and hosts a wide variety of programs and events for wordsmiths and bookworms... creative writing workshops, readings by established and emerging poets and writers, and much more. Our program offerings include:


Join us for two summer readings in Cazenovia!

Tuesday, July 18, 7:30 PM: Poets JANE SPRINGER and DAVID WOJCIECHOWSKI

Sunday, July 23, 2:00 PM: Poet SARAH JEFFERIS

Both readings will take place at St. Peter's Church on Mill St. in Cazenovia, NY. These events are part of the Society for New Music's "Cazenovia Counterpoint" festival of the arts. Both events are free and open to the public.

Programs of the Arts Branch of the YMCA are made possible, in part, by funding from the County of Onondaga, administered by CNY Arts, and the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
