Great Lakes Commonwealth of Letters

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Great Lakes Commonwealth of Letters (GLCL) is a nonprofit organization based in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  It was initially started by three enthusiastic people with a passion for literature and a background in bookselling.  In creating the nonprofit, the group hoped to satisfy a simple, but vital, mission:  to encourage, promote, and celebrate the literary endeavors of writers within the Great Lakes region.

As part of our mission, we're happy to host writing contests (usually one to two a year).  If you're interested in finding out more about our literary activities, please visit our website here or like us on Facebook here.
