This photo is one of the amazing nature photography selections you’ll find in Walloon Writers Review edition 6. Jon Jordan is a contributor you may recognize from his story contributions, including in this edition “Strait Storm”. Be sure to check out a copy of Walloon Writers Review edition 6 for his story from the Les Cheneaux, and more.
We spoke with a member of the media today about how much we all love to share our tales, family stories, impressions and photography of the stunning natural beauty around every corner in this region. Sharing those stories, poems, musings and pictures is what this annual collection is all about.
You’ll find a range of perspectives on the region, suitable for everyone to enjoy – by exceptional writers, who are well-known and already holding their own spot on the shelves in bookstores and libraries to newly emerging writers and photographers. It’s a pick up, read a few and put it down kind of publication – and it’s in print, ready to share with friends and family on the deck, the screened porch, cabin rainy day bookshelf or just around where a little quiet time outside means unplugging and enjoying everything this part of Michigan can offer.
You can find Walloon Writers Review edition 6 on the shelves in many independent bookstores around the region …. from Marquette to Mackinac Island, Harbor Springs, Petoskey and Gaylord to Suttons Bay and Traverse City and down state. Not near a bookstore? Discover Bookshop.org (also supporting local bookstores!) or Barnes&Noble.com.
Walloon Writers Review edition 6 is edited by Glen Young – who was last seen paddling a kayak off Mackinac Island – and features Michigan minded content, new contributors and familiar names. We’d like to welcome writers James P. Lenfestey, James J. Bogan, Jr. and Kacey Riley and nature photographers Lisa Fosmo, Karen Walker and cover contributing photographer, Elizabeth J. Bates.
Enjoy the best of summer right now – the sun is shining and it’s a gorgeous day in Northern Michigan. See ya outside!
