Orion magazine, whose tagline is Nature/Culture/Place, is reviving their "The Place Where You Live" department. This department invites readers to submit a short essay or story, photo, painting, drawing or handmade map describing the place they live and how they connect to it. Entries will be published to Orion's website and select submissions will be included in the publication.
Orion has carved a niche for itself as a sort of literary journal for nature and environmental writing. Although many of it's articles address controversial issues, on the whole the magazine is not overtly political and focuses on creative non-fiction, short fiction, memoir, and poetry. It is a pleasure to read, the kind of thing you curl up with on a Sunday morning with a blanket and a hot cup of coffee.
I look forward to reading about myriad places and how people connect with them.
