Making Waves: a West Michigan Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Making Waves: a West Michigan Literary Review is a product of Ludington Writers, a diverse group of wordsmith enthusiasts and practitioners. Inspired by each other and the beauty of the lakeshore and landscapes around us, our mission is to engender creativity within our local community and beyond.


Submissions will open from January 1st through April 30th for September print and electronic publication. We are open to both poetry, short prose (under 1,000 words in length), and visual art. Our response time is up to three months.


We want to see original work that avoids the trappings of cliché and overly general sentimentality. Wow us with your unique perspective and lyrical voice. Be consistent with your point of view, tenses, rhythm and rhyme. And follow the submission guidelines.
