Call for Submissions – Festival #32

The UK-based treeblog will host the February 1 edition. The deadline for submissions is January 30. We’ll let Ash fill you in on the other details:

Please submit your blog posts, photographs, poetry, works of art, articles, news pieces, bark rubbings and anything else tree-related to mail [at] treeblog [dot] co [dot] uk, making sure that Festival of the Trees or FOTT is contained in the subject header. Alternatively, you can use the online submission form at You do not need to be the author or artist of the content you submit.

There isn’t a theme as such for this edition of the Festival; more a personal request. I would like to see all you good folks send in material relating to your own particular favourite trees. I’m thinking of individual trees that you have a special affection for. It might be a tree that you see plenty of on a regular walk, or a tree that you remember picnicking under as a wee kiddy-winkle, or… or anything really. There are plenty of ways that bonds are formed.

Hard to believe we’ve gone through 31 festivals with no bark rubbings yet! And for that matter, hardly any tree audio. Maybe this is the time to show us what your favorite trees really look and sound like. (Odors, unfortunately, will have to wait until someone figures out a way to digitize and transmit olfactory data.)

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.
