About Town

Stuff to check out when you’re out and about!


Clover, A Literary Rag is a remarkably inclusive literary gallery, providing local writers, both seasoned and beginning, with an opportunity to be published in a diverse range of genres.  Many Bellingham writers are proud to say that their first published work appeared in Clover.” — Susan Chase Foster, author of the blog StillLifeWithTortillas and two-time winner of Bellingham’s Sue C. Boynton Poetry Contest. Learn about Clover, including how to submit your work, here.
