Dust off your moleskines and de-cobweb your typewriters: Sage Magazine’s annual writing contest is back!
Sage is looking for works of journalism and literary nonﬁction that address nature, the environment, and sustainability. We strive to publish work that blurs the boundaries between human and natural systems, that links environmental issues with social justice and wellbeing. The only qualiﬁcation for entry, however, is that your piece has not been previously published.
Big bucks — not to mention eternal glory — could soon be yours: First prize is $500, second is $300, and third is $200! All finalists will be published online and possibly in print, and will be read by our ballin’ panel of celebrity judges, including Bill McKibben (founder of 350.org), Florence Williams (author of Breasts), Carl Zimmer (science writer at the New York Times and elsewhere), and Jon Mooallem (contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine).
The deadline for submissions is April 19. Please email your work to firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck, and give us your best!
