Writers Read is produced by Northland College and broadcast in partnership with Wisconsin Public Radio. Each year, writers from the Twin Ports and northern Wisconsin write their best pieces surrounding a theme. This year’s theme is Awakenings. Writers read original works of fiction, nonfiction and poetry recently before a live audience at Northland College in Ashland.
The 10th annual event also featured music from Jan Lee and Molly Otis. The program was dedicated to the memory of long-time Writers Read participant Laurie Otis, who passed away last year.
Cynthia Belmont, Julie Buckles and Gina Kirsten chose this year's selections. Writers include:
Victoria Lynn Smith
Tina Higgins Wussow
