When someone mentions Up North, Northern Michigan or the UP, (Upper Michigan, if you’re from Wisconsin) , there probably is a great story ready to tell or incredible photo to share. The impression of this region speaks to some in words that flow into poetry, essays, exciting tales of adventure or short stories and for others its a passionate pursuit of incredible nature photography. Walloon Writers Review is an annual publication that collects and shares contributed stories, poetry, creative writing and nature photography inspired by or about Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula.
This place is very special to so many. For some, its a life time of memories of coming up this way for family vacations, for others, this is home. Whether your experience with Northern Michigan or Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is a chance meeting, a trip for a wedding, to Mackinac Island, Tahquamenon Falls or camping, hunting, fishing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, snowmobiling, golf, hiking, exploring or work, or just to see first hand what beauty attracts such as response.
We agree and hope you will share your creative writing and photography with others in our annual literary magazine.
