The National Writers Series is a year-round book festival that brings best-selling authors to Traverse City, sometimes virtually and sometimes to the City Opera House. We've been doing this for 10 years! In fact, we have hosted more than 170 authors, including Daniel Pink, Sebastian Junger, Margaret Atwood, and Alice Walker. With COVID-19, you can now watch our events virtually and for FREE! Just go to www.nationalwritersseries.org.
The National Writers Series is also committed to actively "raising writers" with programs that help students express themselves, explore the world, develop their imaginations, and to think critically.
Keep the conversation going with an NWS Membership. The NWS is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing the Grand Traverse area with the best and brightest literary talent today. Plus, the NWS works diligently to raise the next generation of writers by offering numerous educational opportunities and college scholarships to area youth - elementary through high school. About 20% of NWS's operating budget relies on donation dollars. Click here for more information and to donate today!
