Writers Center

Hosted by the Scarsdale Public Library with support from the Friends of the Scarsdale Library, the Writers Center is a virtual community of writers looking to hone their craft, promote their projects, and exchange ideas about evolving markets and other publishing topics. Our programs include:

  • Ongoing writer critique groups, in which writers can share their work in a supportive and nurturing environment
  • Craft workshops led by faculty from the Sarah Lawrence College Writing Institute
  • A periodic “social issues” workshop for writers interested in exploring their feelings and thoughts about contemporary developments and current events
  • An annual Local Author Fair, where local authors can showcase and sell their books.
  • A semi-annual Festival of Writing, where writers from our critique groups can share their work before an audience of family and friends.
