Group-Sponsored Where Story Meets Nature Contest
|Deadline:||Sep 25, 2015|
The Story of Nature group would love to see more nature-themed writing on Scrib. We’re looking for spellbinding poems, fiction or creative non-fiction stories, and non-fiction essays or articles, that in one way or another make us see nature from a unique perspective. Your perspective.
Anything goes: animal magic, nature journaling, the gift of connecting with nature, climate change fiction, nature heroes, wildlife encounters, childhood memories, nature places, nature phobias, nature therapy, hope for nature, reflections on our place in nature, etc. Remember, your piece doesn’t necessarily have to be in praise of nature. We all know nature can be brutal and ugly. Just make us think, laugh, cry. Startle us.
We encourage you to consider writing a piece with a particular ezine or print journal in mind (for a list, please contact the contest organiser). The aim, then, is to win this contest and, in due course, to get your piece formally published. However, if winners and Honorable Mentions are not interested in submitting their work to a magazine of their choice, they may wish to consider having their work published as guest blog posts on websites of members of the Story of Nature group.
Winners have been announced! Log in to see them.
|1st prize:||70 karma points, 1 year Scribophile Premium upgrade|
|2nd prize:||50 karma points|
|3rd prize:||30 karma points|
