Great Lakes Commonwealth of Letters (GLCL) is a Writers' Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We have a simple, but vital mission: to encourage, promote, and celebrate the literary endeavors of writers in the Great Lakes region.
Andy Mozina & Jaimy Gordon will be here for our Writers Squared series on Sept 7 at 6:30pm.
Writers Squared is an original series here at GLCL wherein two authors (well-known to one another) read from their own work as well as each other’s, engaging with the audience in a dialogue revolving around their craft, the life behind the work, and whatever else may surface! This is a free event.

2016 ANNUAL FUND DRIVE FOR GLCL
We're so excited to announce our 2016 Annual Fund Drive for GLCL! Though we know you get bombarded with requests for money all the time, we really hope you'll consider a donation to GLCL. Your contribution will help us move this little literary arts organization to the next level as we hire a full-time Executive Director, develop a more robust schedule of programming and special projects, extend our hours at theWriters' Hub, and provide more honorariums and travel expense reimbursements for visiting writers.
The Proust Questionnaire
When the author Marcel Proust was a teenager, he responded to a questionnaire in an English-language confessional album; the questions were intended to reveal the tastes and aspirations of the respondent. More recently, a version of the questionnaire has become a back-page favorite featuring celebrities in Vanity Fair magazine. We think it works well for the literati of Michigan, too.
