Bluff & Vine, local literary magazine, grows in its fifth year


The fifth edition of Bluff & Vine is now available at Longs’ Cards and Books in Penn Yan and online at Amazon.  An annual collection of original prose and poetry from amateur and published writers alike, Bluff & Vine strives to capture the unique history and feeling of the Finger Lakes. This year, it’s the most expansive issue yet.

“We received so many great submissions this year, we had to decide—did we want to save some for next year, or make the issue longer?” recalls founding editor Bethany Snyder. “We’re thrilled to be putting out our biggest issue yet.”

The magazine is a labor of love for Snyder and her fellow founding editor Alex Andrasik.

“Putting together each issue is always such a rewarding experience,” Andrasik says. “We both work full time and have a variety of other roles in the community, but we take time to put a lot of care into selecting pieces and laying them out. It’s honestly a joy.”

Andrasik, a librarian, and Snyder, a learning experience designer, conceived of Bluff & Vine a half decade ago after discovering their shared interest in creative writing. After first founding Keuka Writes, which offers workshops and writing prompt programming, they decided to fulfill a mutual dream of establishing a literary magazine.
