Saranac Lake, NY – The Adirondack Center for Writing (ACW) is now accepting submissions from anyone living in the North Country for the ninth installment of Poem Village. The deadline for submissions is March 18. Each year, ACW creates a series of posters, or broadsides, displaying poems written by North Country residents of all ages and experience levels. In April those broadsides are installed in shop windows throughout Saranac Lake in order to build community and beautify the otherwise dreary, wet village during mud season.

The Adirondack Center for Writing (ACW) is pleased to announce the return of PoemVillage, a beloved community-centered program celebrating local poetry from neighbors and friends annually since it was established in 2016. The program is only open to poets with ties to the North Country region in New York State. This year, ACW will be hanging poems in windows all around Saranac Lake during National Poetry Month (April). Also, bundles of locally-harvested poems will be safely delivered to inboxes and to the ACW website daily from April 15 – May 15.
Author’s Note: Greetings. I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone. Your reads, RETWEETS, FACEBOOK shares, compliments & comments have all been so all greatly appreciated. I especially want to thank Editor Melissa Hart & all the great folks at Adirondack Explorer & here at The Adirondack Almanack. I have truly enjoyed the opportunity they have given me to share some of my adventures & stories with all of you.
Han Shan, Cold Mountain, that Zen sage
1200 years ago enjoyed a view from his cave
better than the Emperor saw when he
looked out his windows in the Forbidden City.
Han Shan also used–with the other monks
from the caves around his– a heated pool
at least four times a month.
Living in his own stench was not his style.
