|Traverse City—Dunes Review Launch Party at Brilliant Books, 10/22/17|
Eleven of the forty-four contributors were present to read their works of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction to a standing-room-only attentive crowd. This issue received a record-breaking number of submissions, submitted by writers from Michigan, across the US, and as far away as the Middle Eastern country of The Republic of Cyprus.
The work in this issue is lovely, breathtaking, heartbreaking and uplifting. You can purchase Dunes Review at Brilliant Books, Horizon Books, and it is available for purchase online.
In August I officially became a board member of Michigan Writers, a membership organization,
"a community of writers, poets, editors, teachers, critics, readers, designers, booksellers — and everyone else who values the written word."
Michigan Writers publishes Dunes Review , the Michigan Writers Cooperative Press, and hosts writing-focused events throughout Northern Michigan.
The community of support fostered by Michigan Writers has been instrumental in my growth as a poet. I'm honored to be a board member, and grateful for the opportunity to give back.
You, too, can join Michigan Writers, and membership is not restricted to Michigan residents.
"Membership is $40 and includes a subscription to Dunes Review, free or reduced admission to MW events and workshops, the opportunity to submit your work to the Cooperative Press, eligibility for scholarships to select writers conferences and retreats, MW eNEWS, and more."
