Creative Writing Workshop: Watershed Rye’s Literary Festival

Have a story to tell? Join Maureen Amaturo, writing instructor at the Rye Arts Center, for a writing workshop. Using prompts or other starting points, explore fiction, narrative nonfiction and other forms of creative writing in this workshop. Open to all levels of experience.


Watershed Literary Festival started as an idea mid-Covid, inspired by literary festivals in other communities worldwide. Rye and the surrounding areas have growing networks of writers, from those in weekly writing groups to published authors and creative writing instructors. Why not bring everyone together to share stories and celebrate?

During a time of isolation with the world on pause, literature and story-telling became even more important connectors. Watershed Literary Festival honors the power of the written word and its relationship to time and place, particularly at this moment. The event debut is September 23-25 in Rye, New York.

The three-day program of events includes readings, workshops, interviews, and panel discussions covering a range of topics including investigative journalism, contemporary fiction, humor writing, memoir, and the publishing process. There will also be creative writing workshops for teens and adults.

Proceeds from Watershed Literary Festival will support the Rye Arts Center, Rye Free Reading Room and Rye Historical Society.

We hope you will join us!
