Hi friends! While this is NOT our upcoming cover, we are excited to update everyone on our progress for this edition!
We had an enormous response to this recent Call For Submissions! Wow – it’s so exciting to know how many people want to share their northern Michigan and UP reflections, tales, photography and poetry with others. The review period took a very loooong time but please know that we read and reread (viewed and re-viewed) every submission more that a few times around. With such an amazing response, we were honored, but grimly understood that even with expanded capacity, we just couldn’t include it all.
For everyone who took the time to submit one or more of the wonderful creative reflections, memories, thoughts, events and places in northern Michigan and the UP that crossed our desk, thank you for sharing those with us! It was a challenge to make the final selections.
We hope if you missed our Call For Submissions this time around, you’ll sign up for our email list to be notified of our next Call date. ( We don’t send out a lot of emails…like a few each year)
As we are in production right now for Walloon Writers Review Seventh Edition, we hope to stay on track for a late Spring release date! Please keep an eye out for an announcement and as always, we hope you will support independent bookstores throughout the northern Michigan and Upper Peninsula, such as Between The Covers – Harbor Springs, McLean & Eakin – Petoskey, Horizon Books – Traverse City & Cadillac, Bay Books in Suttons Bay, Parallel 45 in Alpena, Adams McAdams in Central Lake, Snowbound Books-Marquette, Island Books – Mackinac Island, (our beloved Saturn Booksellers-Gaylord until 4/1/22), or downstate atThe Bookman – Grand Haven, and Reader’s World in Holland!
