Writer-in-Residence

 

DWiRP

Since 2006, the Dzanc Writer-in-Residence Program has been committed to increasing literacy in public school students in Michigan and beyond. During each school year, Dzanc places a professional author with an individual school or classroom, allowing them to return each week to build a relationship with students and develop their potential as fiction writers and poets.

In each of the past several years, we have collectively tutored over thousands of students across several different schools. At the conclusion of each program, we publish a hard copy anthology of the participating students' work, distributing a complimentary edition of this book to every school library in the target school districts as well as providing each student participating in the program with a copy.

As the only program of its kind in Michigan that does not charge students or schools, the Dzanc Writer-in-Residence Program offers a unique relationship for students to work directly with professional writers, extending a one of a kind opportunity for the young writers of tomorrow. The chance for these students to improve their writing skills enhances not only their creative talents but their overall communication skills in all arenas. It is our firm belief that continuing to develop and expand these relationships with the students and the schools is a key component in developing great literary and writing programs.
