LOYALHANNA REVIEW LITERARY MAGAZINE
To: Authors, Artists, Faithful Supporters, and Fans of the Loyalhanna Review and Ligonier Valley Writers
In light of the present pandemic, the officers and board of Ligonier Valley Writers regret to announce the cancellation of the 2020 edition of the Loyalhanna Review. We thank those who have sent in submissions for the LR. We are disappointed that we will not be able to share some of your fine work with an appreciative audience this year in print or at a publication party. We hope you will resubmit your work to the Loyalhanna Review next year.
We cancel because of present, shared difficulties, fully aware that so many people look forward to our annual LR reveal and a chance to renew old friendships while we listen to readings and honor our contributors. We hope to be able to reschedule some of our other cancelled events and workshops, and to hold a fundraiser when we can do so safely.
At this time, we plan to continue the Flash Fiction Contest with the knowledge that we may not be able to gather for in-person readings in October. Please continue to check LVWonline.org or our Facebook page for updates.
Thank you for your continued support during this trying time. We appreciate all of our members and welcome new ones. If you’d like to support LVW by becoming a member, you can download an application at here.
Please stay safe and well,
Ligonier Valley Writers Officers and Board of Directors
This is the twenty-eighth annual issue showcasing many talented local authors and artists. It is through the generosity and dedication of our active members and loyal contributors that this year’s Loyalhanna Review can be distributed to the broader southwestern PA community.
We were touched to see how much the Loyalhanna Review means to so many people throughout our region. We sent out a call for help printing this year’s edition, and many members and friends stepped up to help us afford to print 1,500 copies in color.
Thank you so much!
Ruth McDonald, Editor-in-Chief
