Hello you talented writers,

If you are reading this, I am happy to inform you that your [poem/essay/story] has been accepted for publication in the inaugural issue of Deep Wild: Writing from the Backcountry. We received a great many submissions from places near and far, and are assembling a collection of over thirty poems, essays, and stories that capture the essence of backcountry excursions. We are excited to have your work as one of these offerings. The anticipated publication for this first issue of Deep Wild is August 2019.

In order to legally publish the work and in order to showcase you as best as possible, we need your help.

Please download our very simple Publication Agreement using either of these links:

Docx/Word format (downloads automatically)

Google Docs format (opens in new window)

You can copy/paste the form into the email you’ll be sending us with the requisite info, if you are unable to download.

Please fill it out and return it at your earliest convenience, but no later than May 1st, to deepwildjournal@gmail.com. Let us know, of course, if you have any questions or concerns.

Also, please provide in the body of the same email, your biographical statement of fifty words or less. Rather than a mere list of prior publications, we and our readers would prefer a couple of sentences that say something of interest about you as an individual. Feel free to include the URL to a website. Please adhere to this fifty-word limit; it makes more work for all involved if the bio notes have to be edited.

Thanks once more for allowing us to feature your excellent work, and we look forward to hearing back from you.

If any of these steps present challenges or issues, please contact us at that same email and we will work with you.

Thank you,
The Editors of Deep Wild Journal
