In September, the National Writers Series and Traverse City Public Schools launched Front Street Writers, a for-credit, tuition-free, and rigorous creative writing program for public high school students. Led by publishing writers-in-residence, enthusiastic Traverse City Area Public School teachers, and NWS's nationally renowned guest authors who conduct master classes with the students, the program treats the young writer as a serious artist and as a working professional. This is done with the belief that the creation of literature is an important, stimulating way of life and a way to forge a rewarding livelihood.
This special event is the first public reading by the Front Street Writers students and will feature spoken word poetry, fiction excerpts, conversation and refreshments.
Feel free to drop in anytime during the open house. The students will be reading from their works throughout the evening.
