RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I am trying to solicit help from OPB and Think Out Loud to spread the word about Honoring Our River: A Student Anthology (HOR). HOR is a non-profit literary and arts anthology sponsored by Portland General Electric, Eugene Water & Electric Board, Wildwood/Mahonia, the Willamette Partnership and SOLV.
HOR began ten years ago as an effort to stimulate awareness of an important and fragile resource, the Willamette River. Our goal has been to foster basin-wide participation from students of all ages and disciplines. The project is designed to nurture respect and appreciation for the river system that connects all basin dwellers and to provide a showcase for creative student writing and artwork that honors our river.
I would appreciate it if OPB and Think Out Loud could help us by announcing the upcoming submission deadline (Feb. 28th) on air next week (maybe with one or more students reading a published piece from last years anthology?) And, if possible by making HOR a featured story -- or tied to larger story concerning our watershed or nature writing in general -- later in the year to coincide with the publishing of our 10th Anniversary anthology on Earth Day.
Learn more about the anthology and read past submissions by visiting our website: http://www.honoringourriver.org/
Thanks so much.
