SARANAC LAKE - The Adirondack Center for Writing is moving its office from the Paul Smith's College VIC to downtown Saranac Lake.
As of Monday, ACW will be located on Main Street above the Adirondack Artists' Guild.
"We are very excited to share the building with several artists, surrounded by studios, and to be located right in the center of a community like Saranac Lake which has embraced the arts so complely," said an ACW press release emailed Thursday by Executive Director Nathalie Thill.

"Although we look forward to an exciting new future, we feel a deep sense of gratitude toward Paul Smith's College, which has generously housed us for the past 13 years."
ACW still plans to work with the college to bring a major author and performance poets there each year. Novelist Russell Banks will read at the VIC on Sept. 13 at 7:30 p.m., and a performance poetry session is planned for Nov. 15.
ACW offers workshops, conferences and readings all over the Adirondack Park and its outskirts, including Saratoga Springs, Plattsburgh, Ticonderoga and Old Forge. The nonprofit organization is supported by its membership as well as public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts. It's online at www.adirondackcenterforwriting.org.
