An Adventure Begins Here

Coming Your Way in June: Deep Wild 2022!

The 2022 issue of Deep Wild: Writing from the Backcountry, due out this June, offers our largest gathering yet of writing inspired by places where there are no roads, by 25 poets, 6 fiction writers, and 20 essayists—including the winners of the Deep Wild Graduate Student Essay Contest. Also featured is a portfolio of multi-media work by California-based artist Andie Thrams. The cover art is by Utah artist Bessann Swanson. To reserve your copy, and to check out our Bargain Bundles with earlier issues, visit our Subscribe/Support page.

Deep Wild Journal, now in its fourth year, is the home for creative work inspired by journeys to places where there are no roads. Each summer we produce a high-quality, portable, durable journal that is perfect for your own backcountry journeys, whether they be on foot, by boat, or in your easy chair. The journal is printed on FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper in a durable, compact format. It wants to go camping!

If you love wild places and good words, please consider supporting our mission. Follow this link for various subscription options. To read excerpts from published work (and other wild news of note), subscribe to our blog. We are open for submissions of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and artwork in the fall for the following year’s issue. We also sponsor a no-fee student writing contest.
