Please join us at the final event in a yearlong series of First Year Reading Initiative activities.  We are very excited about our collaboration with the  4th Annual Spring Writes Finger Lakes Literary Festival.  Our sessions will be Sunday May 5th from 4:00-5:30 and 5:30-7:00 at the Community School for Music and Arts, downtown Ithaca, 330 East State Street.

Ithaca College Writes is a 2-session series with some of Ithaca College best student and faculty talent.

The first session will feature this year’s best from the First Year Essay contest – Sawyer Hitchcock, Megan Kelleher, and Christopher Keller as well as select writers from Stillwater – Ithaca College’s own arts and literary magazine.

The second session will feature some of IC’s very own widely recognized notable writers, including 2012-2013 FYRI author Eleanor Henderson, Catherine Taylor, Jack Wang, and Fred Wilcox.  These writers will be reading from recently published work or works-in progress.
