Welcome to Walloon Writers Review

Jennifer Huder and I are excited to get ready for Edition 7 and look forward to reading new work and surprising work.  We welcome writers at any stage of their writing careers, and are eager in particular to invite new voices to join our growing chorus of Up North sounds.

For Edition 7, our theme is “Losing Yourself in Northern Michigan”. We are looking for art–fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and photography–that uncovers the many ways our region–from the rivers and hills of Northern Michigan to the deep woods and bogs of the Upper Peninsula–is the perfect place to lose yourself in search of something more enduring, whether walking a little known stream in search of trout or frogs, or climbing an autumn painted hillside far from civilization; from the agate splashed shores of Lake Superior to the wide sandy beaches of Lake Michigan, and everywhere in between. 

Walloon Writers Review is happy to consider work from established writers, including those we have published previously and we are eager to publish new and emerging writers, particularly writers from under-represented communities.

So, we invite you to submit your best work and join our long list of accomplished contributors.  We look forward to your submissions.

Associate Editor
