Walloon Writers Review started during a hike around Walloon Lake, when the water was quiet and the greatness of this part of Northern Michigan left me awestruck. This part of Michigan, Northern Michigan, is a huge geography to tackle, but, it is in this region that summer memories of adventures camping, hiking, cottaging, boating and favorite family tales are told as friends and family gather.
The natural setting compels many of us to keep roaming about, discovering more hidden gems, stunning picturesque nooks and expanses. If it’s the water, the tall deep forests, the sound of gravel as you walk down the two track leading to your favorite place, the smell of burning logs in the fireplace in fall or the rush of deep snow and ruddy cheeks from the fiercely crisp cold or the sparkle of sunshine across Walloon, deep blue of Lake Michigan, the crashing waves at the black rocks in Marquette or the sweet ride over to Mackinac Island, we seem to share this draw to share our story.
Walloon Writers Review gathers original creative writing and photography from published and previously unpublished authors and artists with a mission of offering an exceptional collection of reflections of the area for readers to enjoy. In each edition, we hope to capture the experience and the passionate inspiration of Northern Michigan and the UP.
