Minding Nature: Now Seeking Submissions

A beautifully executed electronic journal with stunning visuals published by The Center for Humans and Nature, Minding Nature is seeking essays, poems, and artwork exploring ecological conservation. They are looking for creative work that deepens the worldwide discussion of our relationship with our environment and “the whole community of life.” They are especially interested in work that suggests practical ways of improving those relationships. You can read the journal online to get a better idea of what they are looking for.

Minding Nature is published three times a year: winter, spring, and fall. Each edition contains work from around thirty contributors. Right now through February 21st, they are seeking submissions for their spring 2020 issue, themed “ecological citizenship.” You can read more about this theme here.
