Look for the Willow Creek Journal on the counter in local Creede businesses.

The Willow Creek Journal is a wonderful collection of local and regional art, prose, and poetry. This is a chance for the community to see their works in a professionally produced magazine that captures the themes and realities of life in the Creede area. The WCJ is published annually and contains writing and artwork by residents and visitors to Creede, Mineral County and the San Luis Valley.
