Adirondack A&E e-News # 251

Thank you …

… for all the kind words and best wishes we received for our milestone of the 250th edition of ADK A&E e-News. It means a lot to us.

We also heard the some had an issue trying to use the link in the announcement to get to the Events calendar—apparently there was a software update going on— so, remember, you can just click on “EVENTS” in the masthead above (under the date) to get to the calendar. That’s there on every issue of the e-News.

Thanks again—you inspire us!

Happy Birthday to ACW!

Adirondack Center for Writing Kicks off July with a Celebration of 25 Stellar Years!

This July marks the 25th anniversary of ACW, and we couldn’t be prouder to share our accomplishments. At the heart of all our endeavors is the commitment to creating a community for writers young and old, to expose local audiences to diverse writers and writing styles, and bring the best of the literary world to the Adirondacks. Our journey began in 1998, and our community continues to grow. Over the last year alone, we’ve provided 74 events, programs, and writing opportunities for nearly 3,500 participants.

ACW thanks our loyal followers and Adirondack community for continuing to support these programs that promote writing as a creative force to broaden our worldview. Our July events and workshops have something for everyone so take advantage of everything our local talent has to offer! Check them out HERE.
