Willawaw Journal

Willawaw Journal is an online magazine for poetry and art, published twice a year in Spring and Fall. Each issue features the poem prompt of a poet laureate (usually from the PNW) with a model response from the editor who may also promote a theme. Our mission is to encourage writers and artists to create, and to generate a community where a diversity of voices is welcome.
