WCC’s Literary Community Highlighted in Journal

The latest edition of the Huron River Review, WCC’s award-winning literary journal, has just been published. The eighth edition is a 160-page glossy montage of prose, poetry, photography, and illustrations. Contributors come from all walks of life at WCC: students, staff, and faculty, both active and retired.

“What’s different this year is the artwork is grittier and the poetry is the strongest ever,” said Tom Zimmerman, an English instructor and HRR editor.

A student editorial board reviewed 150 pieces that were submitted for 55 spots. “We had some wonderful submissions,” said Zimmerman. “The Ann Arbor area has such a great talent pool. This is an area that appreciates and embraces good writing.”

Over its previous seven issues, the HRR has received 29 awards from organizations such as the Community College Humanities Association, the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, and the American Scholastic Press Association.

WCC student Michael Moriarty has had poetry and prose in the last four issues, including three poems in this issue. “There is always an element of excitement to see your work in print beside all these other great artists,” said Moriarty, who just had his first book of poems published by Arabella Press. 

The Huron River Review is available for $6 at the WCC Bookstore. For more information, contact Zimmerman at 734-973-3553 or .
