Whitefish Review is a nationally-acclaimed, non-profit journal publishing the distinctive literature, art, and photography of mountain culture. Author Doug Peacock has called it, "One of the most refreshing journals to hit the literary scene in years." Issue #18 features a conversation with part time Montana resident, David Letterman in his most in-depth interview since ending his 33-year Late Show career. Letterman talks with founding editor Brian Schott about retirement, raising his son, his love of Montana, his own childhood, and growing a wildman beard. Featuring established and emerging authors and artists, Whitefish Review weaves a diverse mix of stories, interviews and conversations along with a 16-page color art section. It is published twice a year, in December and June. As a recognized 501(c)3 tax-exempt corporation created for the public good, it is supported by generous donations, grants, and subscriptions. The journal has featured interviews with Tom Brokaw, Russell Chatham, David James Duncan, John Irving, Tom McGuane, and Terry Tempest Williams, and published the original work of Rick Bass, Douglas H. Chadwick, Pete Fromm, Pam Houston, Doug Peacock, Rick DeMarinis, Annick Smith, Jack Turner, William Kittredge and many other distinguished authors. While publishing some of the finest voices in the American West and beyond, the journal is also discovering and launching promising writers and artists.
