For the 19th time and 13th straight year, Lakeland’s Great Lakes Writers Festival brought top-flight writers to campus to discuss their work and help aspiring young writers hone their craft.

This year’s GLWF featured award-winning published writers Joe Wilkins and David Steingass. The duo read excerpts from their work and moderated multiple writing workshops with members of the community and high school students from Plymouth, Elkhart Lake, Kiel and Sheboygan Falls.

“What a joy that we were able to serve more than 50 very enthusiastic high school students and their teachers, as well as Lakeland students and several adult participants from surrounding communities,” said Karl Elder, Lakeland’s Fessler Professor of Creative Writing.

“I believe this year’s festival to have been among the best, and it has me fired up, now, a year in advance, to begin working on our 20th.”
