About the Reading: 

Colgate & Syracuse University Libraries + Write Out Syracuse presents the Fall 2021 Small Press Reading Series at The Salt City Market. Each reading will be followed by a generative creative writing workshop for writers of all ages. We will have prompts and tons of ways to write — including typewriters — to  let our imaginations fly.
