Every spring in the North Country, the April showers cause a variety of poems to flood into the Adirondack Center for Writing, and that deluge creates PoemVillage!
Open only to poets with ties to the North Country, NY region.
We’re happy to announce that PoemVillage 2022 is open for submissions now until April 1.
PoemVillage is a beloved community program celebrating local poetry from neighbors and friends annually since 2016. This year, we will be hanging poems in windows all around Saranac Lake during National Poetry Month (April). Also, bundles of locally-harvested poems will be safely delivered to inboxes and to the ACW website daily from April 15 – May 15, 2022.
More information and to submit a poem, go HERE.

Be lifted up and engaged, soaking in a magnificence often only reserved for sacred settings and concert halls as Piano by Nature brings you music that has filled the Notre Dame Cathedral and soothed the human spirit, encompassing a multitude of nationalities, traditions, and styles that have been handed down through the ages.
