Call for Submissions For Fourth Edition -Closed

We are excited to announce our Call For Submissions for our Fourth Edition beginning Wednesday, August 1, 2018 and ending at midnight on September 1, 2018.  Thank you for supporting this unique publication!

Walloon Writers Review publishes original stories, poetry, creative writing and photography inspired by the natural beauty and amazing experience of this region.

We are tied by the singular thread of sharing experience and  inspiration of Northern Michigan and UP , so all materials must tie back to this theme.  We can not include all submissions and while we do not have staff to provide individual feedback, each submission is carefully considered.

All North American Rights are retained by  authors and photographers and by submitting materials, selected contributors agree to allow publication, use for promotional purposes and distribution of their submission by Walloon Writers Review. This is where it becomes very important for the copyright symbol for each photographer. Each contributor receives a free copy as our thanks.  Additional copies will be available for purchase at our very supportive area bookstores.

Our publication is growing in number of pages, design and distribution.  Please note the following:

  •  we are expanding word count to 4,000 words maximum
  •  we are limiting to three submissions simultaneously
  •  all photography must be submitted with a copyright symbol
  •  we are an all ages accessible print publication and will not accept adult content,     materials that step outside of our focus or politically motivated writing
  • we will no longer be on all gloss finish paper (magazine style), but will still have high quality, crisp color images

PHOTOGRAPHY CAN BE SUBMITTED DIRECTLY BUT MUST ALSO BE ACCOMPANIED BY READING FEE.  Email  You can mail your $5 check for your photography entry (limit 3) to:  Walloon Writers Review PO BOX 2460 Petoskey, MI  49770.

Amateurs, professionals, award winners, newbies, exceptional, exciting and talented voices and eyes have been included.  We are honored by the participation of every writer and photographer.  Please note that biographies have been truncated for space in the past, however, this year, we will be able to include more …but, …brevity is the soul of wit.  We regret that we can not publish everyone’s website address.

We are a focused publication that serves as a reflection and presents a variety of impressions of this amazing region. All submissions should be suitable for the focus of our publication and our general audience of readers.  Thank you!  We can not wait to see what you turn in!  PS YES, camera photography still looks great in this format!
