The Writers’ Center welcomes Krista Madsen as our new Managing Director. Krista comes to us with a rich background as a published novelist, successful small business entrepreneur, journalist, creative writing instructor and not-for-profit grant administrator. Krista is a cum laude with distinction graduate of Yale University and holds an MFA degree in Creative Writing Fiction from the New School University. Most recently for Historic Hudson Valley she organized the implementation of a New York Community Trust grant to bring an interdisciplinary social studies/art curriculum based on slavery in the colonial north to New York City middle school and high school students. Krista has also been a regular contributor to The Hudson Independent, recording, editing and summarizing oral histories of significant local organizations and individuals in collaboration with the Warner Library in Tarrytown. She lives in Sleepy Hollow with her husband and two children. The Writers’ Center looks forward to a very successful partnership between Krista and our dedicated and talented Program Director, Jennifer Franklin that will move the Center to a higher level of excellence.
