Honored to be Fiction Editor for this new project!
Deep Wild Journal: Writings from the Backcountry, is now accepting submissions of poetry, fiction and nonfiction for its inaugural issue, to be published this summer.
The mission of Deep Wild is to provide a forum for the
best writing we can find that conjures the experiences, observations,
and insights of backcountry journeys. By “backcountry,” we mean away
from paved roads, preferably more than a day’s journey
by foot, skis, snowshoes, kayak, horse, or any other non-motorized
means of conveyance. We are open to a wide spectrum of work, from the
personal to the political.
Deep Wild: Writing from the Backcountry will be published
twice yearly in portable, pocket-sized editions. Selections may also be
published on our website in addition to the physical publication.
The submission deadline for the first issue is March 15. For more information, including submission guidelines, please visit
And please help spread the word!
