As Interlochen Arts Academy marks its 50th anniversary, help us celebrate at a reading by some of its most noteworthy creative writing alumni. The Academy is widely recognized as the premier arts boarding school in the nation, and its writing program occupies a unique and invaluable position in the world of creative writing. Alumni frequently go on to publish award-winning and influential work in all genres. This reading showcases some of its most prominent and successful voices.
Another event to consider:
On Thursday, March 1 from 3-4:30pm, as part of the AWP Book Fair, Wayne State University Press will hold a book signing at their booth featuring current and former IAA creative writing faculty members Jack Driscoll, Michael Delp, Anne-Marie Oomen, Chris Dombrowski and IAA alumna Teresa Scollon (see attached flyer). Come check out our Interlochen table at the bookfair after the signing!
