The Lupine Review: from seed to bud to blossom
The Lupine Review literary magazine debuted in October at the Whistler Writers Festival to a packed salon at the Maury Young Arts Centre. Almost 90 people celebrated the launch, making it one of the Festival’s most-attended events. Guests included most of the 16 writers, poets and artists who are showcased in the 28-page colour magazine.
A mood of gratitude dominated the space as Colleen MacDonald and Abby Deveney – who partnered to create The Lupine Review – welcomed the crowd. It was a fitting sentiment for this volunteer-driven project, brought to life in six short months with a goal of showcasing talent associated with the Sea-to-Sky corridor.
A call for entries in the spring of 2023 drew nearly 40 submissions through the Whistler Writers Festival website. The 2023 Lupine Review accepted poetry, short-form creative writing and visual art. These pieces were blind judged by a panel of three with an expertise in authoring, blogging, editing, poetry and gallery work.
The inaugural edition of The Lupine Review sold out during the Festival. If you have a copy, it is a collector’s item! Proceeds from the magazine were donated to the Festival and will help fund literary activities in the Sea to Sky.
