“A Rally of Writers: the best one day writing conference in Michigan that no one’s heard of!”

Held every spring for the past 35 years (except for the two Covid years) in Lansing, Michigan, A Rally of Writers features 16 sessions of Michigan writers, poets, teachers, editors and publishers discussing every aspect of writing and the publishing business. Choose among four sessions that run simultaneously. View and download past brochures on the Archives menu tab.

For the past few years the venue has been the Lansing Community College West Campus Conference Center at LCC’s West Campus in Delta Township (map), west of downtown Lansing. Parking is free and virtually unlimited. This year an artisan sandwich box lunch is optional at extra cost; lunch seating is limited. The nearest restaurants are less than two miles away (see the map link above and search “nearby”). LCC has a large cafeteria seating area and vending machines immediately adjacent to the conference area. Read the official LCC policy on carrying concealed weapons here.

The committee of A Rally of Writers is grateful for the support of:

The Michigan Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities

Lansing Community College

And all the presenters, past, present and future, and all the guests who ever attended. Live long and write!
