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 BlogCarnival.com.

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 small, odd books, including Breakdown: Banjo Poems, Words on the Street: An Inaction Comic, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my literary blog Via Negativa. I'm the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a webzine showcasing videopoetry and poetry film. And I've been a dedicated if somewhat unorthodox homebrewer for more than 20 years.
