Going Coastal

Given the choice between a cash prize for their annual contest and a chance to get published, the Lake Superior Writers voted back in 2016 to get published.

The result is one of the best possible souvenirs of the Northland: a book about the lake by people who live near it and love it.

Writing, like many other creative pursuits, isn't likely to make you rich.  In fact, you'd be lucky if you could buy the odd sack of groceries now and then.

So what happened when Lake Superior Writers, a loosely-knit group of 200 or so ranging from professional to wanna-be writers, offered as the prize for the 2016 Fiction Writing Contest something they thought writers wanted more than money - or even groceries?  Turned out they were right.
