Call for submissions: Festival 39
On September 1, the festival returns to Arboreality for the fourth time. Earlier editions there included #6 – Taking Root and Bearing Fruit, #12 – Meditations, and #28 – Art and Arboreality. This time, too, Jade plans a themed presentation: Secrets.
Forests, farms, gardens, urban trees, and ancient-rock-clinging-wind-whipped Bristlecone pine stands can be an escape, a place to hide, a space to rest, a home for buried treasure. This month, I invite you to reveal a small glimpse of a secret among the trees. Consider the quiet spots you go to sit, the trees which have stood in silent observation of the events of your life, the aromatic memory of the garden from a place you have visited. With word, image, sound, or otherwise inspired creation, give us a peek at what you see, or what you can imagine.
Email links to trees (at) brainripples (dot) com, with “Festival of the Trees” in the subject line, or submit via our contact form. The deadline is the 28th of August.
We’re also still looking for hosts for the 40th edition of the Festival and beyond. It can be a great way to discover new blogs and get some new readers. See “How to Contribute” for more information on what’s involved.
