Dunes Review - Michigan Writers

Michigan Writers’ Mission: To encourage and support writers of all ages, skill levels, and genres in the Great Lakes state by providing opportunities for networking, publication, and education.

March is coming to a close and if you have little peeps in the house - like me - then you might have loose books piled around the house more than usual as "March is Reading Month" and the kids are trying to cram in as many books as possible.

As Adults, we read (and write) as much as we can no matter what month it is. In lieu of March being stop-drop-and-read month, I wanted to pass along this Michigan Press, Dunes Review, to those that may not be aware of it.


Northern Michigan’s premier independent literary journal, Dunes Review showcases the best local, regional, and national poetry, fiction & essays. Work originally published in Dunes Review has appeared in The Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses series.

Michigan Writers, Inc. was launched in the summer of 2001 when more than two dozen Traverse City-area writers pooled talents and resources to form a group dedicated to helping writers hone their craft and publish their work.

We host regular events where members can meet and mingle, including potluck buffets, workshops, and writers critique groups. We publish Dunes Review and operate the MW Cooperative Press, which publishes chapbooks by members.

Once a month we sponsor Michigan Writers On the Air on Interlochen Public Radio, which interviews local and visiting writers. We hold workshops on all aspects of writing and publishing for writers at all levels of their development. And we help members keep in touch and informed through this web site and through MW News, a regular e-mail newsletter.

Our membership continues to grow as we find new ways to support and enhance our community of writers and readers. So now that you know who we are and what we do…

Won’t you join us?
