Got messages of deep feeling youâ€™d like to send someone, or maybe to the world at large? Starting February 1st, Wilderness Interface Zone will launch its traditional month-long celebration of love and the natural world, Love of Nature Nature of Love Month.
We’re issuing a call for nature-themed love stuff: original poetry, essays, blocks of fiction, art, music (mp3s), videos or other media that address the subject of love while making references to nature. Weâ€™ll take the other side of the coin of affection, too: Weâ€™ll publish work about nature spun up with themes of love.
If you have a sweet song or sonnet youâ€™ve written to someone belovedâ€“or perhaps a video Valentine or an essay avowing your love for people, natural critters or spaces near and dearâ€“please consider sending it to WIZ. Click here for submissions guidelines.
Our fondest hopes for LONNOL Month: Putting into the currents of language flowing around the world some of the deepest, most passionate, freeze-thawingest words that we can find. And if things work out, weâ€™ll also be running one of WIZ’s DVD giveaways, a Pre-Hays Code movie, King of the Jungle, starring loincloth-clad Buster Crabbe as Kaspa the Lion Man.
We hope youâ€™ll join our month-long celebration combining two of the most potent natural forces on the face of the planet–love and language.
