Whitefish Review now in 200 stores, accepting submissions

Print Article

The summer/fall cover of the Whitefish Review features the work of artist Jennifer Li.

The Whitefish Review has expanded its distribution and is now featured in more than 200 bookstores nationwide.

The expansion comes with the independent literary journal’s release of its summer/fall issue. The journal is in 175 Barnes & Noble locations and is distributed by TNG (The News Group), North America’s largest supplier of periodicals.

“We’re proud of our roots and first want to give a shout out to Bookworks of Whitefish, our favorite local bookstore and the first to put us on their shelves 11 years ago,” said Brian Schott, founding editor of Whitefish Review. “As our story continues, being recognized by the largest magazine distributor in the country, as well as a major retail chain like Barnes & Noble, is a good next chapter.”

Since 2007, Whitefish Review has published more than 700 artists and writers, typically about half of the work coming from Montana. While publishing fiction, essays, and poetry from established writers, the editors also work tirelessly to discover new, emerging voices, featuring first time writers in every issue.

The Review has increasingly made a splash by interviewing creative thinkers and celebrities who have a connection and love for Montana, the environment, and the arts. Whitefish Review has published recent interviews with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Tom Brokaw, and Michael Keaton.

More than 20 volunteer editors and readers curate the bi-annual journal, including a 16-page color art and photography section with commentary from the contributors, bringing the reader deeper into the mind of the artist.

“We believe the arts are vital for a healthy society and can help create a more sustainable future for wild places across our planet,” said Schott. “We are grateful for the support we have received both from the Whitefish community and from people all over the nation. These are difficult times, from climate change to living in an increasingly divided country. Stories and art are vital for our health, as we search for beauty.”

Whitefish Review is currently accepting submissions through Oct. 1 for issue #23, “Our Living Planet,” to be published in December. Editors are seeking fiction, essays, poetry, art, and photography that look at our planet and its systems as living beings.
