Attention writers (and blogging writers): take a side step from your usual writing routine and flex your writing muscles to tell us a tree story. Regardless of whether you are a published author, an aspiring-to-be-published author, or a simple lover of the writing craft, blogging is an excellent way to promote your work.
The Festival of the Trees is a monthly blog carnival featuring trees and forests which has been published every month for over two years at a variety of host blogs. The Festival of the Trees 28 will be hosted at Arboreality on October 1, and I would like to share a little “art and arboreality”.
Many of us have specific, personal stories about a tree or forest from our lives. Blogging is a great medium for short story-telling, so that’s what I encourage this month: photoblog, videoblog, break out the crayons, sing a song, write a poem, whatever moves you: tell us a story about a tree or forest from your life. Or make one up. Or do something even cooler. (And then send me the link.)
Submission deadline is Saturday, September 27, 2008. Submit your blog posts to me via email at jadeblackwater [at] brainripples [dot] com, or use the blog carnival submission form.
If you are a writer without a blog, you are welcome to email me your submission and I can include it with my post.
Happy writing, and spread the word: please feel welcome to invite others to participate!
