Stone Canoe

About Stone Canoe

Stone Canoe, a journal of arts and ideas from Upstate New York, is published annually, each spring, by the YMCA’s Downtown Writers Center, a program of the Arts Branch of the YMCA.. The journal was founded at Syracuse University by founding editor Robert Colley.

Stone Canoe showcases the work of a diverse mix of emerging and well-established artists and writers with connections to Upstate New York. In doing so, we hope to promote a greater awareness of the cultural and intellectual richness that characterizes life in the region.
