Call for Submissions: Festival 10

Festival of the TreesThe April 1st edition of the Festival of the Trees will appear at the Sheffield, England-based blog Words and Pictures. Please send tree-related links to Roger by March 30th for inclusion: roger (dot) butterfield (at) gmail (dot) com, or use the submission form at

Speaking of April Fools Day, I guess most of us would consider carving graffiti on trees to be a fairly foolish thing to do. But it doesn’t hurt the tree, and indigenous people around the globe have used tree bark as a canvas for millennia. One person’s desecration is another person’s arborglyph, I guess. I mention this because I’ve just put the image you see here on our Promote page, as a button-link back to this humble site, in case people want to litter their sidebars with it. It was automatically generated by the good folks at Imagechef — no trees were harmed in the making of this image.

UPDATE (March 6): Our BlogCarnival page has been fixed, and the submission form there seems to be working once again. Thanks to Denise at BlogCarnival for her prompt attention to the situation.

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several books of poetry, including Ice Mountain: An Elegy, Breakdown: Banjo Poems, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my long-running literary blog Via Negativa, where I'm currently creating erasure poems from every entry of the Diary of Samuel Pepys. I'm also the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a blog showcasing the best poetry videos on the web.
