The vacation and retirement community in Yates Township located in a small rural northwestern part of Michigan near the southeastern border of Lake County, is the site of the first annual Idelwild Writers & Poets Conference, August 12-14, 2010 in Idlewild, MI. Called the “Black Eden” during it’s heyday, Idlewild was one of only a few resorts in the country where African-Americans were allowed to vacation and purchase property before this discrimination became illegal in 1964.
The conference is sponsored by Aquarius Press. For registration and hotel information contact Aquarius Press, PO Box 23096
