River River, a community of writers
…drawing inspiration from the Hudson River Valley. Join us and continue the tradition of the many artists who have experienced the river’s light touch. Through writing circles, workshops, open mic events, and our biannual journal, we create and share a thriving literary environment.
Writing, Reading and Listening
River River offers Writing Circles and Workshops for writers working in all genres. Prompts, writing time, revision suggestions, and discussions of literary craft bring a high level of support and encouragement for every writer.
Art Café Nyack co-hosts our Open Mic for Writers, on the first and third Tuesday evenings of the month. We welcome readings from any genre–your own work or traditional pieces–in this evening literary event. Come to read, to listen, and to meet other local writers. Check our Events page for upcoming dates.
River River Literary Journal
Twice a year, River River publishes brilliant new poetry, prose, translations & photography in its online journal. Featuring work by established and emerging artists from near and far, the journal reflects the diverse sensibilities of its Hudson Valley editors.
