We are excited to announce our call for submissions for Volume III of our beautiful Farmer-ish print annual. Our print annual, like our journal, is arranged by the seasons with sections for Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. While about 20 percent of the annual is “best of” from our online journal, most of our content will be original.
What We Are Looking For
We are seeking poetry, narrative essays, educational essays, recipes, and how-to pieces that fit well into the seasons. We love personal essays and poetry but always especially need educational pieces and instructional maker essays. We also love a good farmer profile. Additionally, because our call for submissions comes in late Spring and early Summer, most of our submissions last year neglected Fall and Winter, so we will be especially looking for essays, recipes, and more that work well for Fall and Winter. We are also looking for high-quality photographs to accompany your essay. If you are writing about cows on your farm, we would love to see your photographs. We love nothing better than featuring the animals being written about whenever possible!
About Our Annual
Living somewhere between a magazine and a book, our beautiful full-color print annual published with high-quality paper features award-winning authors and authors who are being published in print for the first time. Volume III will be approximately 150 pages and will again feature original Farmer-ish artwork by Maine artist, Max Silver.
