The Binghamton Poetry Project

BINGHAMTON CENTER FOR WRITERS, STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK

The Binghamton Poetry Project is a literary outreach program of the Binghamton Center for Writers, one of the Centers for Excellence at Binghamton University - SUNY. The project educates youth and adults on how to write and read creatively. Our mission is to enhance art awareness and literacy in Broome County and to connect the University with Broome County citizens through poetry. We also provide leadership positions for Creative Writing PhD students and expand the efforts of the Binghamton Center for Writers. We are working to enhance the artistic and creative life of the community at large.
