Alumni Blog

Every day of the week, Yaddo artists’ work is presented, exhibited, read, published, and performed in venues around the world. You can tell other Yaddo artist alumni and other visitors to the website about your upcoming events on this blog. Simply fill out the form here. Once the listing is approved by the communications manager, it will be posted, with the most-recently approved at the top. The maximum file size for images is 128 MB. We’ll also add events on our own, as they come to our attention.

You may only submit one entry per event. Multiple engagements to promote a single work (for example, multiple appearances on a book tour), or announcements for classes or workshops on craft, will not be posted. We reserve the right to exercise our discretion in sharing submitted posts to the Yaddo community.

We also encourage you to follow us on Twitter (@YaddoToday) and to use the hashtag #YaddoArtist or #YaddoArtists to share news with us and your fellow alumni.

“Like a 1500s Portuguese Marquis trying to get his mind around the concept that the world is round” was Albo’s reaction to being asked to be a sperm donor in 2011. The Times calls this exploration of love and family “funny, provocative and smartly staged.” Tickets on sale online. Multiple performances.
