One of the latest to enter the scene is called The Whitefish Review. As described in a press release by editor Brian Schott, "The 128-page soft cover book features established and emerging authors and artists with a leaning toward the literature of mountain culture."
One difference between this journal and most others: It seems not to see the world in elitist literary terms. Along with contribution by such writers as William Kittredge ("The Willow Field"), Tim Cahill ("A Wolverine is Eating My Leg") and Ernest Hebert ("Spoonwood"), the inaugural issue includes an interview with recently retired NFL (and one-time Washington State University) quarterback Drew Bledsoe.
"In the interview," Schott's press release states, "one of the top ten quarterbacks of all time talks about his love of skiing, the art of football and life after sports stardom."
Copies of the Whitefish Review, which will be published twice a year, are available for purchase at www.WhitefishReview.com. Cost of the first issue is $10. Volume II will be available on Dec. 1.
