E-Magazine Content Contributor - Peel Community Climate Council
Peel Community Climate Council is calling for submissions for our first e-magazine - The Epoch.
Epoch is an extended period of time usually characterized by a distinctive development or by a memorable series of events.
Our small-circulation, self-published Zine will feature a collection of community-contributed art, texts and images.
We want to know what the climate movement means, feels and looks like to you.
This opportunity is open to all ages – children and youth strongly encouraged to participate.
Some prompts to consider:
- Ask your young siblings or cousins to draw a picture of their favourite animal and ask them what climate change means to them
- If you have grandparents who immigrated from a different country, ask them to share their experience farming, coming to Canada, and/or encounters with wildlife back home
- Do your parents/grandparents/friends have tips on how to be sustainable while grocery shopping? Are you aware of any cultural sustainable practices your family practices?
Additional examples of accepted* mediums:
- Short Stories (fiction and non-fiction)
- Embeddable Videos
*If you have a piece that does not fit in the categories above, please reach out to us. Ideally, the work must be able to be printed and/or shared via a digital publishing platform.
Content contributors will receive a free copy of the e-magazine, and the youth contributors will be entered in a raffle to win a Children’s book from Equicool.
The deadline for submissions is July 31st 2020. Please email us at email@example.com
