CAP was founded in 1990 to act as an advocate for the arts, serve the public by providing services and resources for county artists and arts organizations, and encourage collaboration among arts, education, business, civic and government organizations.Learn more
As a result of the Literary Needs survey conducted in 2008, CAP was able to begin making contact with a number of literary artists throughout the region. The steering committee that helped craft the Spring (W)rites festival also worked up the following list of criteria for inclusion in the first edition of the Finger Lakes Writers Directory.
Self-published works are not eligible to meet the criteria.
Publications in on-line journals may be counted as well as print publications but these must not be personal or friends' websites or blogs.
Writers who qualify and wish to be listed for multiple genres should submit documentation for the criteria in each genre (e.g. poetry and fiction). If you just wish to indicate that you practice other genres than your primary listing, you may mention that in the biographical
note on your application sheet.
THE CREATION OF THIS DIRECTORY WAS MADE POSSIBLE THROUGH FUNDS PROVIDED BY THE NEW YORK STATE COUNCIL ON THE ARTS, A STATE AGENCY.
