ABOUT GCHS WRITERS WEEK

Grayslake Central High School's Writers Week is an annual week-long celebration of the work of authors, journalists, poets, songwriters, broadcasters, and screenwriters. Each year, professional writers of all kinds are invited to speak and/or perform alongside students and faculty in the GCHS theater. A big shout out to Fremd High School for the inspiration!

    • All English classes will attend at least one theater presentation throughout the week.
    • Teachers from other departments may also decide to bring their classes to certain theater presentations.
    • Students will be able to attend during their free periods (including lunch), but they must present their school ID and sign a sheet in the theater lobby before entering.

    • Community members are welcome, but seating is limited, so an 'RSVP' will be required in advance of the event in order to reserve a spot.

    • Upon arrival, all members of the public will be required to provide a valid picture ID to GCHS security personnel at the main entrance.

    • Is there an apostrophe in Writers Week? No. We know it's tempting to throw one in there, but it's a week of writers, not a week that is possessed by one writer or many writers.
