Call for submissions: Festival 40, the benefits of trees

Next month, the Festival returns to local ecologist for the second time this year. Georgia did an outstanding job with #33 back in March, so don’t miss your chance to be part of this edition. She’s particularly interested in blog posts on the theme of the benefits of trees to people, wildlife, and the environment in general.

Send tree-related blog posts, images, video, and other online discoveries to info[at]localecology[dot]org (please put “Festival of the Trees” in the subject line of your email), or you can use the contact form here. The deadline for submissions is Saturday, September 26 Monday, September 28.

We are also still seeking volunteers to host the Festival of the Trees in December and beyond. If you’ve never hosted a blog carnival before, it can be a great way to learn about new blogs and bring new readers to your own blog. See here for more information on what’s involved.

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.
