JUMP IN to the West Marin Review, an award-winning literary and arts journal published by Point Reyes Books and friends and neighbors. Begun nine years ago in the rural town of Point Reyes Station, California, the journal now attracts never-before-published submissions from around the world and from artists in many mediums and writers of all persuasions.
West Marin Review - Current Issue VOLUME 6 (2015): This year’s Review offers a cornucopia of art, poetry, and prose from new as well as well-published contributors. The journal provides a blend of fiction and essays, poetry and art. This volume features extraordinary marine specimens that are themselves art, collected by biophysicist Peter Connors, along with history, humor, memoir, appreciation of nature, and original music. Contributors are from urban and rural places near and far—from West Coast to East. There is art by Mark Ropers, Charles Eckart, and Mary Siedman, alongside sunflowers by talented fourth graders at the West Marin School; poetry by Jody Farrell, Roy Mash, and Erin Rodoni; a remembrance by Robert Kroninger; fiction by Frances Lefkowitz; and a powerful nonfiction piece by Elisabeth Ptak. events and news

This is the moment when bliss is what you glimpse
From the corner of your eye, as you drive past
Running errands, and the wind comes up,
And the surface of the water glitters hard against it.
From September, Inverness by Robert Hass
