Whitefish Review releases ‘Rising Voices’

Print Article

Whitefish Review will release “Rising Voices” issue No. 21 on Saturday, Dec. 2 with a celebration at Casey’s in downtown Whitefish.

The new issue features nearly 40 authors, poets, photographers, and artists including interviews with actor Michael Keaton and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist David Fahrenthold.

The evening will feature readings by Montana’s poet laureate, Lowell Jaeger, along with poet Amy Pearson.

Jaeger served as the lead editor for “Rising Voices” and has been the poetry editor at Whitefish Review for the past eight years. In August, he was selected for a two-year term as Montana’s newest poet laureate. He is the author of seven collections of poems and winner of the Grolier Poetry Peace Prize. Most recently he was awarded the Montana Governor’s Humanities Award for his work in promoting thoughtful civic discourse.

“For this issue of Whitefish Review, we sent forth a call for poems, stories, essays, and images which illustrate the powerful and mysterious force within us that wants us to move, make noise, shape the earth, and arrange words on the page,” Jaeger said.

Pearson’s newest poetry book, “100 Days of Solitude” is based on her experience in the Bob Marshall Wilderness as a fire lookout. She works as a professor of Humanities at Flathead Valley Community College.

Furthering its mission to publish and encourage new and emerging voices, young poets Dylan Running Crane and Abby Lowry will also read from their first published work. Running Crane is a freshman at the University of Montana and Lowry is a junior at Whitefish High School.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with live music by cellist and vocalist Lee Zimmerman. Readings start at 7:30 p.m. The evening is sponsored by the Whitefish Community Foundation, Glacier Bank and Good Medicine Lodge. A $10 entry donation is suggested to support the nonprofit journal.

Whitefish Review is a nonprofit journal publishing the literature, art, and photography of mountain culture. It is supported by generous donations, grants, and subscriptions. Copies of Whitefish Review are also available in bookstores and for order online at www.whitefishreview.org.
