The 16th annual Spring Writes Literary Festival will feature over 100 local and regional writers, in over 40 literary themed events. 20 live panels, readings, workshops, performances and happenings will take place in downtown Ithaca locations from Thursday, May 2nd to Sunday, May 5th with Zoom events from May 11th to the 18th. Writing workshops, both Zoom and live continue through September.

The Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County (CAP) organized the first Festival in 2009 in collaboration with the New York State Council on the Arts to shine a light on the abundance of literary talent in our region and to bring writers and audiences together. It has grown from 12 events that first year to 40 events in recent years.
