News from The Lighthouse School

Six of our recent BILS students received $600 scholarships to attend the Bear River Writing Conference at Camp Daggett from May 28 to June 2, where they’ll mingle with professional writers from around the world and partner with the conference presenters to provide additional support throughout the weekend. And they’ll attend a special evening at the Crooked Tree Arts Center. The events include: Border Crossings 2003: Multimedia Theater of the Arts; A reading slide presentation by James McCullough and Ed Wargin to launch their new book A Robert Traver Legacy; A Reading by Donald Hall to launch his new book Willow Temple: Selected and New Stories; and Poetry and Jazz in Performance: Barry Wallenstein, Jim Owen, and Guests.

This past semester 3 youths received their high school diplomas from the BILS. This summer plans are forming for some of the students to receive college level credits through a writing project that Beaver Island’s Mike Barrett, writer/teacher(and gentleman)-in-residence is teaching through Northwestern Michigan College.
