This winter, I was given the (honor of) the editorship of The Bear Deluxe, a 25-year-running print environmental arts magazine/journal published in Portland, Oregon. We don’t (yet) have an online version, but we do have a website that gives a good idea of the project: orlo.org. Orlo is an arts non-profit and the “Bear” is published under that umbrella.
We are on track to, this summer, publish the first issue in three years (hibernation during the editor search). I am looking for one or two solid pieces of environmental issues reportage/literary/immersion journalism (2500-4000 words) to fill up the issue–deadline, mid-late July. The theme is “What Endures.” I am interested in global perspectives, marginalized voices, youth activism, and other unique perspectives.
The following issue, Fall/Winter 2019, will center on the theme of plants–botany–textiles.
Submissions guidelines are here. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss ideas and with any questions.
