Annual Publishing Conference ACW offers a publishing conference annually, changing the focus of the program and the venue each year. ACW has brought literary agents and editors from major presses to offer advice and to review manuscripts. We are proud to have helped many regional authors get their work published.

Writing Workshops and Readings The Adirondack Center for Writing hosts a series of workshops designed to provide writers with creative and technical skills and professional knowledge of publishing and marketing issues. ACW also holds readings to inspire writers and create opportunities for regional writers to meet. In addition, Paul Smith's College helps us sponsor an annual reading/lecture featuring a nationally acclaimed author. In 2007, we hosted both Alistair MacLeod and Terry Tempest Williams, and in 2009 novelist and memoirist Rick Moody gave the Visiting Author Reading, and Pulitzer Prize winner Steven Millhauser. We also featured a performance poetry night with three of the best spoken-word poets in the country. Check our events page to see when our next workshop or event will be.
