Permanent Vacation: Volume 2, The East
Bona Fide Books seeks literary essays for a collection about life and
work in our national parks. In Volume 1, we read tales of grizzly
encounters and streaking through Denali, personal relationships with
temperamental elk and the dirty truth behind housekeeping in
Yellowstone. Now, we seek stories from parks east of the Mississippi,
from Acadia to the Everglades, from the Smokies to Shenandoah. Whether
you spent your time on the trail or alligator-proofing your cabin, we
would love to read your experiences, cerebral and corporeal alike.
Please note, contributors have lived or worked in the parks.
We welcome tree-hugging epiphanies and reflections on the daily grind.
We want to hear the societal, environmental, and existential
implications of living in the park. What happened there, and how did it
influence your life?
Each writer will receive $100 for their essay and one copy of the collection.
We are accepting submissions through September 1. Please submit via e-mail to:
submissionsATbonafidebooksDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to .)
