On Friday April 29th the Creative Writing program celebrated the launch of the April issue of Red Wheelbarrow by making stew for 50 hungry writers over an open fire, followed by S'mores and a spectacular reading of work from the latest issue.

On Saturday, a distinguished slate of Interlochen creative writing alumni returned to campus for a day-long mini-conference aimed at helping current students gain greater perspective on the various issues facing writers in the 21st century, as well as how their Interlochen education is preparing them for various career paths.

The day was capped off with a reading by current and former Interlochen faculty, a group whose total years of teaching and writing experience totals 98 years.
