Welcome to The Landis Review, home of fine writing and fine writers. It is the name of a long running (20 years) writers’ critique group in the Seattle area, named after our founder, Marie Landis.

We are dedicated to the craft of writing, to the joy of creation, and to exploring new and exciting possibilities offered by technology as a way to share our work as widely as possible, electronically and in print.

The Alaska Way Viaduct Memorial Sculpture

As everyone in Seattle knows, the Alaska Way Viaduct, that waterfront elevated highway (and eyesore) is being torn down. Bruce Taylor envisioned a part of it to remain as a memorial sculpture, and Roberta Gregory did a quick illustration.
