The  mission of Deep Wild: Writing from the Backcountry is to provide a forum for the best writing we can find that conjures the experiences, observations, and insights of backcountry journeys. By “backcountry,” we mean away from paved roads, preferably more than a day’s journey by foot, skis, snowshoes, kayak, horse, or any other non-motorized means of conveyance. We are open to a wide spectrum of work, from the personal to the political.

Deep Wild: Writing from the Backcountry will be published annually in portable, pocket-sized editions. Selections may also be published on our website in addition to the physical publication.

We are currently accepting submissions for the inaugural issue, to be published in  2019. The deadline for the first issue is March 15.
