FYI – Wild In The Willamette Inviting Submissions (Due SEP 15)

Lorraine Anderson, managing editor of Wild In The Willamette, would like to share the following with WotR members:

WILD IN THE WILLAMETTE is a guidebook to natural areas in the mid-Willamette Valley; the book will be published by OSU Press in 2015. It aims to be both field guide and literary compendium, meant for everyone wanting to explore wild places within the eight major watersheds of the mid-Willamette Valley — by foot, by kayak or canoe, and by bicycle.

We are now in the process of seeking unpaid contributions of outdoor writing and hope to include as many different voices as possible. All royalties will go to Greenbelt Land Trust. Writers will receive credit in the book, a free copy, and the satisfaction of supporting GLT’s valuable work of protecting open space in the valley. Submissions will be due by September 15, 2013.

Please see our website at for our working table of contents for the book. If you should be interested in writing for us, please send an email to: telling me why you’re interested in writing for WITW and what makes you uniquely qualified to write about the site or outing you choose. I’ll send you an example of how sites and/or outings should be written up, along with our writers’ guidelines.

Please feel free to pass the word along to others who you think might be interested in writing for us.
