Calling all Nature Lovers – Nature Writers – Nature Photographers

Reconnecting with nature is crucial in this fast-paced world that we live in… it helps us to slow down, be mindful, and tap into our creative side. We are encouraging participants of the Achene Literary Journal to connect with nature through their poetry and photography  – and share it with the world!

Mission:  By publishing and showcasing nature poetry, and photography from young-adults, we hope to inspire our future generations to act and conserve our natural world.

Who: Young Adults (12 – 18 years old) 

What: We welcome you, ALL young adults, to share your writing and photography! Please join us in a creative, global movement for young nature lovers.

With each submission, we plant a tree with our partner One Tree Planted!

When: Submissions open November 22, 2019, through December 22, 2020.

How: Through Submittable, please submit your poetry and photography. Your work will be posted on the ACHENE blog of the Tiny Seed Literary Journal website! All work will be posted on the Achene Blog and published in an annual journal available as a hard copy through Blurb
