Front Street Writers Program
Help make a place for aspiring student creative writers to be mentored by professional authors to grow their potential here in Traverse City. TCAPS, in partnership with the National Writers Series, is pleased to offer Front Street Writers (FSW), a for-credit, tuition-free, and rigorous creative writing program for public high school students. Led by publishing writers-in-residence, enthusiastic TCAPS 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. The FSW studio is located at 123 W. Front Street in downtown Traverse City, in a nearly 4,000 square foot creative learning studio. Donate Now.
I look forward to an America which will reward achievement in the arts as we reward achievement in business or statecraft. I look forward to an America which will steadily enlarge cultural opportunities for all our citizens.
