This fall has been full of notable events for Interlochen Arts Academy's Creative Writing students.

Novelist Matt Bell visited Interlochen to give a master class to students, followed later in the evening by a reading at a local bookstore from his new novel, Scrapper.


The Creative Writing students collaborated to create a performance titled "Northern Light: Celebrating 40 Years of Creative Writing at Interlochen."


Interlochen Arts Academy Creative Writing student Annalise Lozier recently won two awards for her poetry. She received a $1,000 prize for winning the 2015 Luminarts Cultural Foundation creative writing award, and she was named one of 85 Foyle Young Poets of the Year. She was selected from nearly 6,000 entrants this year from across the world. Winners were invited to a special awards ceremony in London on National Poetry Day on Oct. 8, 2015.
