All contents are published with permission of original author/artist and all rights are retained by the contributor. No compensation can be offered as this project is self sustaining with a little help from the founder.

Editors NotePhotographers: We do not set specific parameters on size of image or pixels, camera or phone, settings, etc. and recently have unfortunately had a couple of disappointing results with color variations in our reprinting on paper of these amazing photographs. In our e-edition, we hope to avoid any variation, but this is new territory. Please take into consideration before submitting your beautiful work that variations in color can happen, are not due to retouching by Walloon Writers Review, our publisher Mission Point Press or our printer. Walloon Writers Review is not responsible for those variations. Your art is very important and we strive to achieve the best quality possible.

DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 30, 2020. We will forgo reading fee for 2020. Please Submit directly to:
