Bright Hill Press & Literary Center

Bright Hill Center offers literary and art programming for youth and adults. Programs range from children and adult literary workshops to “Word Thursdays,” featured poet and writer readings with open mic. Bright Hill is dedicated to increasing audiences’ appreciation of the writing arts and oral traditions that comprise American literature, and to encouraging and furthering the tradition of poetry and writing in the Catskills and beyond.

The Bright Hill Center features the Bright Hill Community Library & Internet Wing, the Word & Image Gallery, our renovated education wing (where workshops take place, home to our smart board and art supply storage), our dine-in kitchen book shop, the Bright Hill administrative offices, and guest rooms for visiting writers and artists. Outdoors, the Patterns Literary Garden and the Children’s Secret Garden are features of our peaceful, Catskills nature haven.

Bright Hill Press has published more than 75 collections of poetry as well as anthologies of poetry, prose, and visual arts.

We also partner with national, state, and non-for-profit organizations on special projects.
