Honoring Our Rivers is currently accepting submissions for their 2013 edition of their student anthology. A project of The Willamette Partnership, Honoring Our Rivers aims to engage the creative and reflective intellectual capacities of Oregon residents, particularly its youth, to promote and nurture respect for the Watersheds of Oregon. To do this, HOR publishes an annual anthology of literature and artwork which features multiple expressions of the relationship between people and their Watersheds–the waters, weather, land, plants, animals and habitats that make up our beautiful and fragile river systems.
WHO CAN SUBMIT? Any student, age kindergarten through college, is eligible to submit their work. Selected entries will be published in our student Anthology alongside esteemed invited Oregon writers. The authors of published pieces will receive a free copy of the anthology and a chance to be featured in upcoming events such as our annual student reading at Powell’s City of Books!
WHAT SHOULD I SUBMIT? We welcome written works (no more than 500 words per entry please) that are typed or clearly printed, and original art and photography. Digital entries are encouraged. Artwork and photographs MUST be black and white. One entry per student. A written entry may be accompanied by original artwork.
There is also a special section of the anthology entitled “River Voices” that is exclusively for entries submitted in foreign languages. In past anthologies, entries in Spanish, Chinese, Hindi, Russian and Japanese were submitted. Translations must be provided with foreign language submissions.
HOW DO I SUBMIT? It’s easy! Simply fill out the entry form (see link below). You can return via email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you sign electronically, or are able to sign & scan. Or you can mail to: 2550 SW Hillsboro HWY, Hillsboro, OR 97123. Please keep a copy of your work. Submissions will not be returned.
