Celebrate the Wild Flathead! Join Montana Wilderness Association and Whitefish Review for an evening of poems and stories from the wild backcountry of the Flathead National Forest on Thursday, September 15 from 5:30 – 8pm at Bonsai Brewing Project in Whitefish. Local authors will share works that were inspired by the beauty of the places in our own wild backyard such as the Whitefish Range, the majestic Swan Range and the beloved Bob Marshall Wilderness. As we reminisce about another glorious summer on the trail, MWA encourages those who care about these areas to add their comments on the Flathead National Forest’s new management plan, which is currently being revised. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be provided and a FREE GIFT for new and current MWA members. This is a FREE event that is open to the public. Join us to listen, share, and protect the future of our wild legacy!

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.
