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.
