The Timberline Review is a new literary journal, published by Willamette Writers, the first issue of which debuted on August 1st. It contains short fiction, creative nonfiction, essays, and poetry. The Rogue Valley’s own Marisa Petersen was featured in this issue, along with former Oregon Poet Laureate Paulann Petersen.

Timberline Review editors Peter R Field and Pam Wells seek “work that has the power to inspire a conversation with the times we live in. We’re searching for bold new work from writers everywhere. Our mission is to find these voices, to listen, and to let them resound from the treetops. Our mission is to support literary freedom.”

Message in a Bottle?

A few of us in the Rogue Valley have been participating all month in the August Postcard Fest, but its not too late for everyone to send a “message in a bottle” into the world. Oregon Humanities invites you to participate in a program called “Dear Stranger,” a letter-exchange program now in its second year. Ben Waterhouse, the creative mind behind the project, explained to me that it is an attempt to increase Oregonians’ contact with one another by writing letters on a pre-selected topic, which coincides with the theme of each quarterly magazine OH publishes.

Find out more about the program on the Oregon Humanities website, including address and permission release form ( and join me at a letter writing workshop this Friday, August 28, at the Medford branch of the Jackson County Library 1-2:30 in the Adams Room.
