For over 30 summers, the New York State Summer Writers Institute has brought together distinguished writers and aspiring students for an once-in-a-lifetime intensive writing experience. Award-winning authors and poets lend their creative and academic expertise to students through workshops, special readings, tutorial sessions, and panel discussions. Part of the Institute's mission is to provide this invaluable wisdom and experience to a wide range of talented individuals by offering scholarship assistance to those who need it. This means that each year, the Institute's student body is composed of a wonderfully diverse mix of individuals all sharing a common passion for writing and personal growth.

Your gift to the New York State Summer Writers Institute will ensure that the Institute can continue to open its doors to gifted writers who might not otherwise be able to attend.
