The Lightkeeper reflects our desire to illuminate and inspire the unseen talent American writers have to showcase. While all compelling works are considered for publication, we the editors share a passion for well-written, distinctive work involving Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the Great Lakes region, and the north at large. Work like a lighthouse beam in the offshore darkness: 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.
"Time, which changes people, does not alter the image we have retained of them."
