Barstow & Grand is grounded in the literary culture of Western Wisconsin, with local authors writing about upper-Midwestern themes, including Bruce Taylor, Jerry Poling, Darci Schummer, Mike Paulus, Jason Splichal, Andy Patrie, Ken Szymanski, and many more . We also feature authors from across the country with more dynamic connections to the Chippewa Valley, creating a compelling argument for what constitutes a community journal in the 21st century.
