The start of something new…

Walloon Writers Review would like to thank the contributing authors of our First Edition, including Randy Evans, Elizabeth O’Donnell, Bill Chatterson, Janelle Roberts, Robert Fawcett and Christopher J. Anastasi.  The creativity of their writing, the vivid capture of the natural settings we experience in Northern Michigan and the unique cross section of ‘voices’ made this publication so exciting, we couldn’t wait to get the finished version ready to go!  With a little improvisation, we were able to pull a print version together and hope you will enjoy it.

We have been invited to make copies available for sale of Walloon Writers Review First Edition at a favorite bookstore in the area, Between The Covers in Harbor Springs.  If you get the chance, stop in to peruse the exciting offering of books by Michigan authors in this welcoming shop, located at 106 E. Main Street.  Easy to find and easy to be in there for way too long and come out with an armload of unplanned books to read!

Walloon Writers Review is accepting submissions for Second Edition, due last day of this calendar year, which will be longer, and will also include a donation of reading fees to a local non-profit organization. We are casting our line out further into the water and welcoming a less specific theme, just a thread tying your line to Northern Michigan and/or the Upper Peninsula and encouraging photography.

All rights stay with the original writers and artists and a portion of the reading fee will be donated to an area non-profit.  First Edition contributors supported Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council, a non-profit organization that “speaks for the Northern Michigan’s waters” and ” is dedicated to protection our lakes, streams, wetlands and groundwater..”.   More information about this important organization is available on the last page of First Edition or you can check them out at

For many of us, anywhere north in Michigan is a passion and fall is the best time to feel inspired-from brilliantly colorful surroundings to smoky cold mornings and starfilled nights. We hope Walloon Writers Review offers a place for you to share your passion through writing and photography or to enjoy the creativity of others.
