Here’s a sneak peek at the Sea-to-Sky corridor’s newest magazine for writers and artists: it’s called The Lupine Review and it is officially launching on October 13 at the Whistler Writers Festival.
A volunteer initiative nurtured and produced by author Colleen MacDonald and journalist Abby Deveney, along with graphic designer Rae Kearney, The Lupine Review gives voice to the Sea to Sky’s budding writers, poets and artists.
The 28-page print magazine features works from 16 creative forces, among them poets from Pemberton, artists from Squamish and Whistler and short story writers from throughout the Sea-to-Sky corridor. An online edition will follow.
We’re delighted to showcase these new talents, who are now “In the Lup”.
Why the publication’s name? Here’s what the trio say in the inaugural edition:
“The lupine flower represents beginnings, renewal, hope. Found throughout our region, its seeds are carried far and wide. It is vigorous, resilient and beautiful to behold. The name was a natural fit.”
A free-to-attend launch party for The Lupine Review will be held on October 13 at 6:45pm at the Maury Young Arts Centre in Whistler. Please join this celebration of local talent and collaborative energy by navigating to our event and RSVPing here.
The Lupine Review will be available to purchase at the Whistler Writers Festival and at Armchair Books in Whistler. We are grateful for the support of the Whistler Writers Festival and the Whistler Writing Society.
