Writers & Books

We believe in the power and importance of the written word; in celebrating the written word as a tool for communication and an art form; that storytelling is a vital aspect of the human experience that unites humanity; that reading builds empathy and brings people together; and in creating a safe space for voices of all backgrounds, beliefs, origins, and abilities. Writers & Books engages youth and adults with the literary arts through workshops, readings, conferences, and presentations. Writers & Books operates Ampersand Books, an independent bookstore, at our Neighborhood of the Arts headquarters, and owns and operates Gell: A Finger Lakes Creative Retreat, a 24-acre site in Naples, NY.

We focus on: Arts and Culture, Education

Where we are: Monroe, Ontario
