The revival of Michigan's auto industry has garnered a lot of recent media attention, but few stories have focused on the enormous amount of creative work happening in this state. Michigan is home to a diverse community of writers whose work inspires, enlightens, and engages. It is important to recognize and celebrate the creative economy that is thriving in Michigan.

On Saturday, October 6, Fiction Writers Review and the University of Michigan’s MFA Program in Creative Writing will celebrate Michigan’s great writers and the state’s enduring literary traditions by declaring Michigan “The State of the Book.” They will do so by co-hosting a day-long series of public events in Rackham Auditorium on the University of Michigan campus, showcasing the state’s leading literary stars, as well as the next generation of Michigan writers.

Sponsored by Co-hosted by Fiction Writers Review and University of Michigan MFA Program. Funded in part by Michigan Humanities Council.
