West Marin Review
The West Marin Review is a literary and arts journal inspired by the extraordinary landscapes of West Marin County and Northern California. The Review is a collaboration of friends, neighbors, Point Reyes Books, and the Tomales Bay Library Association—a volunteer group that wishes to share our affinity for land and community. Framed by the Point Reyes National Seashore and rolling pastureland, this place has long attracted renowned artists and writers, some of whom are featured in the Review, along with those whose work appears for the first time in print. We invite you to read, reflect, and contribute!

The 2008 premiere edition of the West Marin Review features the work of many local writers and artists. It is a collaboration of neighbors, Point Reyes Books, and the Tomales Bay Library Association—a volunteer group inspired by the intersection of land and community. Volume 1 of the Review centers on the theme "The Geography of Hope," inspired by Wallace Stegner's "Wilderness Letter," written in 1961, appealing Congress to enact legislation protecting America's wilderness. Contributors include: Mark Dowie, Jules Evens, Natalie Goldberg, Robert Hass, John Korty, Doris Ober, Wendy Schwartz, Inez Storer, Jack Welpott, and more.
The West Marin Review, Volume 2, published in 2009, celebrates the landscapes, people, and nature of West Marin and the Northern California coast. It features local writers and artists, and those far beyond our community--on East Coast, in Central America, and Europe. Contributors include: John Anerson, Philip Fradkin, Blair Fuller, Anney Held, Joanne Kyger, Linda Pastan, Terry Tempst Williams, and more.

Whether you think you have enough money or too little, whether you “manage” your money or ignore it-underneath most people’s thoughts and behaviors are often powerful feelings about money.
