During February, Wilderness Interface Zone is launching its traditional month-long celebration of love and the natural world, Love of Nature Nature of Love Month.
To that end, weâ€™re issuing an open call for nature-themed, love-laced writing and visual arts: original poetry, essays, blocks of fiction, art, music (mp3s), videos or other media that address the subject of love while referencing nature, even if lightly. By the same token, weâ€™re interested in nature writing raveled up with themes of love.
If youâ€™ve written artsy Valentine wishes to someone belovedâ€”or perhaps created a video Valentine or made a live reading of a sonnet or lyric poem thatâ€™s original to youâ€”or if youâ€™ve written a short essay avowing your love for people, critters, or spaces that make you feel alive, please consider sending it to WIZ. Click here for submissions guidelines.
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.
