About

 armchair_with_book_and_wineI am freelance writer Megan Shaffer, creator and curator of Night Light Revue. My work as a writer and reviewer of contemporary literature has appeared in HOUR Detroit magazine, BookBrowse,  and various Patch publications. I sat on the Michigan Notable Book committee for three years, and do my best to cover literary events and author appearances in the Detroit metro area and throughout the state of Michigan.

After years of casual conversations regarding book suggestions, readings, and all things literary, I decided to take it online with a little publication of my own.

Why Night Light Revue?

Time and time again the question is asked, “When do you find the time to read and write?”  The answer, unequivocally, is after the workaday world grinds to a halt. Those of us who are not in a position to practice our trade of choice as a living, must eke out time to pursue our dreams and perfect our crafts.

Whether you opt to slink off to write immediately after tucking in the kids, roam the house thinking of plot during the wee hours, or relish those quiet reading hours just before dawn, there lies an entire artistic underground humming right alongside you. NLR is for those of us who create by the honeyed glow of the night light, and pursue our artistic dreams while the rest of the world sleeps.
