About NYS Littree

NYS LitTree was created to serve:

NYSCA-funded organizations with literary programs, their curators, and the poets and writers they present.

Bright Hill was commissioned by:

the New York State Council on the Arts to develop and maintain this rich site.

The site offers in-depth information about:

the organizations and their curators as well as detailed schedules, thereby serving as a learning center and clearing house for those involved in literature-based presentation.

The new +Add Events+ calendar:

was added Marc Funaro of Advantex, Inc.

Soon Littree will add:

a State Planning Calendar for Festivals, Fund-raising Events, and other Major Events.

planners will be able to:

avoid date conflicts for these functions that are so important in the lives of organizations.
