Local Lore – Call for Submissions

Hello! Long time, no blog.

I am unfortunately not yet writing to share new work of my own with you. I am still blissfully adjusting to and loving my new role as a mother. Our baby girl turned 7 months yesterday. SEVEN MONTHS! Holy smokes! Time does fly.

However, a friend in Perth, Ontario, is putting together an anthology of stories, poetry, artwork, recipes, and audio work that relates to our town and surrounding area. The project is called Local Lore, and the website can be found at www.locallore.ca. For more information on the project and submission guidelines, please visit the site. She’s also featured one of my Perth Portraits in the print ad, and on her website. This particular painting was one of my favourites in the series. In high school, I used to frequent that weeping willow on the Tay River. It’s a beautiful spot to eat lunch and ponder algebraic equations.

Have a look at the site, and send something in, Perthites and Lanark County residents and enthusiasts! I myself am very excited to read the ghost stories! This is a really fun and exciting project. There are prizes up for offer for the top 15 Campfire Story entries, as well, including delectable gourmet locally-made food products.
