What is PoemVillage?
“Every spring in the North County, the April showers cause a variety of poems to flood into the Adirondack Center for Writing, and the deluge creates Poem Village.” — Your neighbors are poets. Maybe you are too! by Mountain Lake PBS Spotlight
Since 2016, ACW has invited writers of all ages, experience levels, and locations within the North Country to send poems to be published and installed in windows in Saranac Lake during National Poetry Month.
Poem Village is an annual, village-wide beautification project that gives writers a chance to publish their work and reach audiences of passersby, visitors, and Saranac Lake locals
