Call for Submissions – Festival #23

Baltimore oriole Mike of 10,000 Birds is the founder of I and the Bird, the bi-weekly blog carnival for birds and bird lovers and our chief inspiration when we founded the Festival of the Trees almost two years ago. So we’re very pleased and honored to announce that he’ll be hosting the next edition of the Festival on May 1. After all, what could be a more logical combination than birds and trees?

This won’t be a themed festival per se, though we do hope to increase participation among birders and other nature-lovers whose links and visits have made 10,000 Birds one of the most popular birding blogs on the web, and one of the top ten nature blogs overall. If you haven’t submitted to the Festival in recent months, this would be a good time to get outside, enjoy the spring or autumn weather, depending on which hemisphere you reside in, and gather material for the best tree-related post you can write. You can either email your permalinks to mike (at) 10000birds (dot) com, send them via the Contact page at 10,000 Birds, or submit them via our online submission form — whichever is most convenient. The deadline for submissions is April 29.

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.
