In addition to its program of readings, the Forum sponsors residencies, workshops, symposia, and festivals - all dedicated to the art of writing. A unique audio-visual project initiated in 1968 by the Department of English, with the assistance of the Educational Communication Center, the Brockport Writers Forum Videotape Library currently numbers over 200 interviews, readings, and discussions of craft with major contemporaries.
