As part of the continued 40th anniversary of the Creative Writing program, current creative writing majors and notable alumni of the program will convene at Interlochen’s Writing House at the end of April for a two-day creative writing mini-conference.

The conference kicks off Friday, April 29, with a dinner and Red Wheelbarrow reading in the evening, featuring six current creative writing majors.

Day two includes presentations such as “I Learn By Going Where I Have to Go,” in which Interlochen creative writing alumni Mohammed Ali, Jeremy Chamberlain and other writers reflect on their changing relationship to writing; “Post-Inty, Post-College, Post MFA, Now What?” with Jamie Delp, Kara Krewer and more, moderated by Lesley Tye; and other programs.

The conference will close with a “Past and Present” reading featuring current writing faculty Adam Atkinson, Director of Creative Writing Dave Griffith, and retired faculty Anne-Marie Oomen, Mike Delp, and Jack Driscoll.

The conference will be webcast via Google Hangouts. Further information is available on the Interlochen Center for the Arts Creative Writing Facebook Page.
