I love nature, words, and worthy causes. This morning I read a poem by Jason Bayless that inspired me to publish a nature anthology to raise awareness for our environment, to celebrate nature, and to support the worldwide Earth Day movement.
I have published and contributed to several anthologies to support worthy causes. It’s my favorite poetry to write.
Are you a nature lover? If so, I invite you to submit a poem, short story, or black and white photo/artwork for the nature anthology that will launch on Earth Day, April 22, 2021.
If you would like to be part of the Earth Day Nature Anthology, please email your poem, black and white photo/artwork, or story along with your contact, social, bio info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for submissions is February 28, 2021.
The poem, photo, artwork, story can be previously published. The only requirement is that it is yours. You maintain the copyright to your submitted works beyond the book that may be published in various formats. Contributors will be able to purchase the book at minimal cost plus shipping. Proceeds will be donated to nature awareness programs and environmental conservation efforts.
I will read select poems on my Instagram live on Earth Day, April 22, 2021, from 12–1 p.m. EST.
Words are powerful. They can inspire positive change. Let’s do our part in our own unique and creative ways to be the change.
