Call for Submissions “Grubby Writers”

18 Feb

fence It seems as though February just may be a quiet time for outdoor gardens, and with few visits from Jack Frost this winter, I am really eager for the spring and having intoxicating thoughts about getting down and dirty in my spring and summer garden. I am wondering who in our Neighborhood is having some of these same dirty thoughts? If you are passionate about gardening and enjoy writing, I would like to have you guest blog on our website. It is my intention to get a few good writers and a few good gardeners hand picked from our very own neighborhood, give them (you) recognition and share your passion and your knowledge about topics that you enjoy. They can be insightful, witty, edgy and/or entertaining, but they must be factual! If you would like to be a part of what I am calling our “Grubby Writers” by supplying content and photos and having us Publish them on our blog for everyone to read, please contact me. harrold.janet@gmail.com

Articles should be 500 words (give or take) and we maintain editors rights and can change words as we see necessary. This will be fun, I have listed a few Titles to get your creative juices flowing, you can choose one of these titles and run with it or you can choose one of your own. But, you must contact me first, this is not a paying position, just an opportunity to be involved in our community and to be recognized for your hard work. Have fun and be inspirational.

Our first “Grubby Writer” will be Jeffrey Margulies from Roslindale, he will be writing about “Compost, Compost, Compost” You can expect to read his Article next week and I hope to have you all sign up with me soon!

Other suggested Titles you can choose from include but are not limited to:

  • “Vegetable Gardens” (Beet the heat) (Stringin’ Beans)
  • “On the Edge” or “Edgy” (gardens that act as borders)
  • “Counting Birds” (things you can do to encourage wildlife)
  • “Wild about Susan” (wild flowers to include black-eyed susans)
  • “Herb Garden” (including recipes for rosemary chicken or Basil pizza)
