Clarification: The headline has been updated to reflect that this is not an exhaustive list of all of the literary arts spaces and organizations within the city.

Nothing says creative writing like the month of November. Since 1999, artists across the nation have spent the month’s 30 days putting pen to paper (or fingertips to keyboard) in the name of literary arts. National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short, inspires writers to exercise their craft, write in community, and for many, author a story from beginning to end. In honor of the month’s creative excitement, we’re taking a look at some of the spaces and programs around the city that foster literary growth year-round.

Rochester Hills students create nonprofit to donate diverse books to public libraries VIA @Local4News @RochesterPLD #michiganwriters #motownwriters #writerslife #mittenlit #michlit

Rochester Hills students create nonprofit to donate diverse books to public libraries

By Koco McAboy – Reporter, Dane Sager Kelly

ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. – A new donation from Girls of the Crescent to the Rochester Hills Public Library added to the diversity of the books available.

“We’re the public’s library,” said Christine Lind Hage, the director of the library. “We have 100,000 people, so our collection serves all of them.”

The library now has new books aimed at teenagers and children highlighting Muslim women as the main characters.

“There’s more traditional stories like ‘Sleeping Beauty,’ ‘Snow White,'” said Betsy Raczkowski, the manager of youth services at the library. “Every kid is going to recognize that and then there’s more cultural and religious books and then there’s also fun fiction.”

.@Donald_Levin’s New Book Launch is Coming June 21 via @GreyWolfe_Pub #michiganwriters #michlit #mittenlit #indiebooks

Just a quick reminder . . . the book launch party celebrating the publication of my fifth Martin Preuss mystery, AN UNCERTAIN ACCOMPLICE, is coming up in less than two weeks!
It’s at 7 pm on Thursday, June 21st, at the Grey Wolfe Scriptorium Bookstore, 145 E. 14 Mile, in Clawson in the Ace Hardware Plaza, one block east of Main Street. There’s a lot of construction on 14 Mile, but the bookstore parking lot is accessible either through 14 Mile or by circling around behind 14 and coming in through Bowers Street.
I’ll be signing and selling copies of the new book, and all the other books in the series will be available as well. We’ll have refreshments and live music. It’s free and open to the public, and friends and family are of course welcome.
