Gentle Reminder

On the way back from Taquamenon Falls and Whitefish Point, the first signs of summers end waved from atop a handful of trees.

There is still time for summer fun and yet, the night after the Perseids Meteor Shower, a yellow half moon appeared and thoughts turned to the glory of fall and the romance of deep thick snow and skiing, boarding, riding the rails and crystal clear nights.

As you consider your submission to Walloon Writers Review, keep in mind the enthusiastic audience who will get to read your story or reflection or see your photography taken here. This is your audience , where we celebrate the natural beauty and wonderful experience attached to this amazing region.

Our deadline is September 1. Please join us!
