Gala RSVP

We are thrilled to announce the 2024 National Writers Series Summer Gala! Our annual gala is a time to relax, bond with old and new friends, and fully enjoy the party (with no fundraising pleas, we promise!).

The gala is our most important fundraiser of the year, supporting our year-round author events, creative writing classes for kids, poetry workshops at at-risk schools, and Battle of the Books, an exciting reading competition for 350 area kids.

This year’s gala features a cocktail hour, appetizers and dinner by Sugar 2 Salt, a talk by bestselling novelist Peter Heller, acoustic music, and a performance by Tilt Think, an improv group that takes comedy to hilarious heights. And you’ll take home a signed, hardcover copy of Burn, Heller’s newest book!

The event will be hosted at the Cathedral Barns at Grand Traverse Commons on Friday, August 23, 5 to 8 pm. Thanks to our sponsors XXXX.

Kindest regards,
The National Writers Series staff and board
