How does place impact prose?Here: Women Writing on Michigan's Upper Peninsulaexplores that very question, drawing on the work of Upper Peninsula authors past and present to create a vibrant kaleidoscope of voices and experiences. Bame-wa-wa-ge-zhik-aquay, Janet Loxley Lewis, Lorine Niedecker, Catie Rosemurgy, and thirty-one other authors important to the region appear in this exceptional and diverse volume. In poetry ("Spring" by Beverly Matherne, "For Those Who Dream of Cranes" by Elinor Benedict, and "Skin on Skin" by Sally Brunk), short fiction ("North Country" by Roxane Gay, "For the Healing of All Women" by April Lindala, and "Winter Mines" by Sharon Dilworth), and novel excerpts (fromOnce on This Islandby Gloria Whelan,South of Superiorby Ellen Airgood, andDandelion Cottageby Carroll Watson Rankin), the unique character of the U.P. materializes on the page. The book also shines a spotlight on powerful emerging voices such as Lisa Fay Coutley, Charmi Keranen, and Saara Myrene Raappana. The first of its kind, this is an anthology for all seasons, an homage to the rich literary heritage of the region.
