About Spring Writes Literary Festival
The Community Arts Partnership’s (CAP) Spring Writes Literary Festival takes place in downtown Ithaca annually during the first weekend in May and features over 30 literary themed events over four days. Events include panels and workshops geared towards emerging and established writers - and events such as readings, performances, and play readings that are also of interest to the general public. Now in its 9th year, the Festival has evolved into an impressive array of events.
CAP organized the first Spring Writes Festival in 2009 at the request of New York State Council on the Arts. Staff at NYSCA knew that there was a wealth of writers in our region, but no formal writing organization to apply to NYSCA for funding. The resulting festival retains its original mission to celebrate and showcase local (Finger Lakes Region) writers.
Local author Kathryn Henion is our 2018 artistic director. www.kathrynhenion.com.
