The Highland Park Literary Festival, now in its 20th year, brought Highland Park High School into a community of celebrated writers at the end of last February.
Dave Eggers gave the keynote speech, and over 23 poets, playwrights, journalists, storytellers, and songwriters led writing workshops for HPHS students and their community.
Students also had the chance to participate in an open mic night, as well as enter into a student writing contest. The winners are pictured here.
