A quick post to point readers to three exciting things happening today:
- Qarrtsiluni announces the theme of its summer issue: Economy.
Whatever medium you choose to work in, be it words, photography, music or video, make economy earn its keep to deliver a piece that nails thought, character, place or plot. As Anne Carson wrote in Economy of the Unlost, “Economy is a trope of intellectual, aesthetic and moral value.”
- The Clade — a brand-new group environmental blog — spreads its wings.
Who are our contributors? You are. The whole point of this experiment in reinventing environmental journalism is to put you behind the wheel. You need not be a journalist, nor an expert, nor an activist: if you care about the environment and you have something to say, we want you on board.
- The Festival of the Trees celebrates Beltane at Orchards Forever.
Beltane was originally a fertility festival, and what better inspiration for love and romance than trees festooned in delicate, fragrant blossoms?
