Submit your writing to the DWC's 15th Anniversary Student Anthology

Help us celebrate 15 years of terrific literary arts programs at the Downtown Writers Center by submitting work for this special project. The 15th anniversary student anthology will include poems, stories, essays and short plays by some of the many students who have taken workshops at the DWC. Due to space considerations, we cannot accept more than one piece of work per student. Page count is limited, and as a result, we anticipate that this will be a competitive opportunity. Send your best work! If your work is accepted for the anthology, you will receive one copy of the published book as payment. Submission Deadline: July 1, 2015

In order to submit work for the anthology, you must meet the following eligibility guidelines:

Applications now being accepted for KJ James Memorial Scholarship

The NYS Blues Festival is pleased to announce the KJ James Memorial Scholarship, which will be awarded every year to promising young performers.

Kelly James is considered to be the father of the blues scene in Syracuse. He was responsible for creating and cultivating the thriving blues scene we enjoy today in Central New York, including starting the very first blues festival at a bar on Burnet Ave. He played with the band Triple Shot before forming Dr. Blue and the Kingsnakes, who toured nationally, before he went solo as Dr. Blue.

Kelly James' big heart and spirit of generosity and support for up-and-coming blues musicians was legendary in the Central New York area and beyond.

If you know a talented young person playing the blues, please encourage them to submit a an application for the KJ James Memorial Scholarship. Details can be found at the website. Deadline is June 11, 2015.
