Last year around this time, we encouraged you to write for the environment and win $1500. Many of you took notice, proving to me that you’re either a prolific writer seeking any opportunity to strengthen that muscle, or you’re a poor environmentalist who needs money for your tofu fund. Who knows? Maybe you’re both.
Either way, this incredible opportunity has reared its head again, and since we animal activists need to latch onto any chance we can to speak up for our (sometimes) four-footed and feathered friends — especially in circles that tend to ignore the obvious overlaps (like amongst some environmentalists) — we’re telling you about it once again.
The Web of Life Foundation — or WOLF — is seeking essays or stories for a competition focused on socio-environmental issues, and speaking directly to this year’s theme of “An Aspirational Future.” I know what my aspirational future would look like …
The rules state that “You can submit essays or short stories, factual commentary or fiction – whichever way and whichever writing style you choose to communicate your ideas. Just make it compelling.” There is no charge for submitting (and you may do so up to three times), and the deadline is September 30. Ah, yes. And the winner receives $1,500 — which, last time I checked, can buy a lot of tofu.
