Whitefish Review call for submissions on “wildness”

Passed along by John Frederick . . .

Want to write about wildness or the wild?

Here is a request for submissions to the Whitefish Review from Christina Eisenberg, soon to be Dr. Eisenberg, who recently studied wolves in the North Fork.

This is a call for submissions on wildness for the Whitefish Review…

I am the lead editor for the Whitefish Review Summer issue. We have chosen as this issue’s theme wildness. Rick Bass will be the fiction contest judge. The Wild Issue, as it is being called, will feature short stories, poetry, nonfiction and art on the theme of wildness. All interested contributors can learn more by visiting our Website: http://www.whitefishreview.org/index.htm We are looking for submissions that celebrate and explore wildness in astonishing, inspiring ways.

The reading period is open through March 15. The launch party will be June 1, 2012, in Whitefish.

Cristina Eisenberg has appeared here before. She contributed an article to the Summer 2009 NFPA Newsletter discussing the far-reaching and surprising effects on the ecosystem of top predators such as wolves. Later in the year, the Missoulian did a lengthy article — with photos — on the studies she did in the North Fork.
