The Winter Edition 2015/2016

Theme: Winter is a time of starkness, bareness. It is a time of introspection. At the same time it is a time to enjoy the freedom that comes with the pure beauty of the land covered in snow and water frozen in time. Winter can also provide us a clear pallet from which to better understand the foundation upon which our lives are built.

What are we looking for? We are looking for Poetry, short stories and visual art work (must be reproducible – high quality JPEGs, color correction not possible) that will speak to our vision of Winter and that will help deepen a reader's connection to, contemplation of and understanding of Winter.

What is Nature Inspired?
Nature Inspired is a published collection of writing and art that explores our deep connection to nature.

It is printed four times a year, with each edition celebrating one season. We strive to bring the reader beautiful, thought-provoking works by writers and artists from all around the world.

For each season we print two separate editions: Short Stories and Poetry/Art/Stories provided with have suitable submissions to fill both.

The Short Stories edition includes up to 25 Short Stories that meet the criteria of the call, and the Poetry/Art/Stories edition will include as many pieces that qualify and that we can effectively include.

The work in each edition is hand-picked to create a powerful collection of season specific words and images which we hope will help to deepen the reader's connection to Nature.

The Winter Editions are due out December 23, 2015.

Submissions are reviewed as they come in. You may be accepted, not-accepted or put on a waiting list if we aren’t certain.
