Thank you!





The Writers' Center is a must for aspiring writers trying to hone their craft, and at the same time belonging to a community of writers that support and encourage each other.  And I would be remiss if I did not say what a wonderful teacher and mentor Sergio is.  Thank you, Hudson Valley Writers' Center for making me a better writer.

It was exactly the kind of workshop I was looking for.

_Kathleen Williamson, reading attendee


It changed my life outside the class. It's just really valuable. Lynne Lori Sylvan said something about being present to other people; that's what it's all about. It's so exciting; it was such a joy. 


_Teresa McAleenan, improv student


It was so fun to share and be part of this community.

_Christina Ortolani, open mic participant



The writing workshop taught me how to be not afraid to share my life with people and I got a little better with my handwriting and lost a bit of stage fright.

Writing can take anyone to the zoo, space, the city, and many places that you go to in your mind.
