In order to keep the MacDowell community connected, a biannual newsletter, which features in-depth stories and news about the Colony and its Fellows, is mailed to those who subscribe. A monthly e-News is also distributed to those who sign up online, and those who donate to MacDowell during the year receive an annual report. To subscribe to our monthly e-News or sign up for our mailing list to receive invitations, our biannual newsletter, and other materials, click here. You may also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

In addition to engaging with the public at our community programs, benefits, and other events, MacDowell welcomes involvement by members of the public in other capacities. Many, for instance, have volunteered their time at the MacDowell library, in its offices, at its events, and elsewhere. Interns are welcome to inquire about opportunities at either the New York or New Hampshire locations. Please write using the contact information below to find out how you can get involved with MacDowell.
