The name The Lightkeeper reflects our desire to illuminate and inspire the unseen talent Northern Michigan University undergraduates have to showcase. We the editors share a passion for well-written, distinctive work. Work like a beam of light in the darkness at sea: vivid, luminous, striking, and –ultimately – enlightening.
"The Scarlet Sentinel" is artwork and poetry done by Craig L. Teed, a resident of Marquette who gives tours at the Marquette Harbor Lighthouse. His interview is also available on "The Lightkeeper" in this issue.
