As we continue our journey to provide visually rich, ecosystem based stories of the Salish Sea region, we’re looking for content contributions.
The theme of the March 2019 issue will be another commonly seen Pacific Northwest landmark: RAIN!
By March, many people will have had enough of the rain, and some new and interesting views of rain could provide a silver lining. I have a few articles lined up (mini-hoodoos, rain gardens, and some personal perspectives). But there’s room for one or two more articles and/or some poetry, artwork, etc.
Water, it as most artists know, can not only take on quite a variety of forms, both passive and active, but it also sometimes sports very provocative reflections.
If you would like to create something that will delight people by broadening their vision when they look at rain, especially as relates to our local ecosystems, let us know.
Salish Magazine takes inquisitive readers outdoors with in-depth storytelling about things that people can see firsthand in our public forests and beaches. A key focus of the magazine is to illustrate the interconnectedness woven through our ecosystems, using lenses of science, history, and culture.
Our articles are often collaborations between topical experts, literary writers, visual artists, and people who can add unique ecosystem or cultural insights.
In 2019 Salish Magazine will publish 4 issues: in March, June, September, and December. This page will be updated to keep it relevant to foreseeable deadlines.
If you’d like to submit something for the March RAIN issue, let me know ASAP so that I can coordinate what you’re doing with other submissions, and so that I can refine our search for complementary visual and audio media.
Our articles are often collaborations between topical experts, literary writers, visual artists, and people who can add unique ecosystem or cultural insights. So you don’t have to do it all. We can have a conversation about what you’re doing and then find other talents and media if it makes sense to complement your work.
Below is a more complete list of near term deadlines. The March 8 issue will be about Rain, and the June 7 issue theme isn’t set yet. I’m waiting for a critical mass of proposals for the June issue, but I’m leaning toward tide pools.
ASAP: Outline or draft, sketch of visual media, etc. for March 8 issue
Feb. 21, 2019: Final article, poem, art, photo, video, music for March 8 issue
March 1, 2019: Brief proposals for June 7 issue (but the sooner the better)
Apr. 10, 2019: Outline or draft, sketch of visual media, etc. for June 7 Issue
May 10, 2019: Final article, poem, art, photo, video, music for June 7 Issue
This is a nonprofit project, yet I believe that those contributing to it should be offered compensation. I am working to secure revenue for that via subscriptions, sponsorships, donations, & grants. Unfortunately, it’s one of many things I’m doing and I don’t have a very clear timeline for this.
Thanks! It’s your content contributions that make this magazine possible!
