- Adirondack Life Writing Contest
There’s more to the Adirondack Park than its peaks and valleys, woods and

the focus of our first-ever writing contest.
Writers are encouraged to tell the stories of forgotten Adirondackers,
living or dead, using oral histories, interviews and personal observations.
