Call for Submissions: Festival 45 returns to The Voltage Gate
The March 1 edition of the Festival of the Trees returns to The Voltage Gate, “a blog about ecology and the creative process” — pretty much the perfect blend of interests for a FOTT host. It’s been more than three years since the Festival was last at Jeremy’s — #7 in January 2007 — and in the interim he took a detour to the Science Blogs network followed by an extended hiatus. Now he’s back at his original site and blogging better than ever, in the company of an artist named Heather. They’re welcoming tree-related submissions of any description, so wherever on the planet you happen to live, if there are trees nearby, we urge you to pay them a visit sometime this short month, post about it to your blog or website, and send in the link.
In unrelated news, we welcome a brand-new nature blog carnival to the web and to our sidebar. An Inordinate Fondness aims to be “a celebration of beetles — of their indescribable beauty, amazing forms, and astonishing diversity.” Editions are scheduled for the middle of each month, with submissions for the inaugural edition due on February 15. See the coordinating blog for details.
