Are you a native plant lover who likes to write (or a writer who loves native plants)? We’re looking for authors and articles for our chapter’s monthly Bay Leaf newsletter. Bay Leaf readers represent a wide range of native plant interests, so here’s a chance to share what interests you with an appreciative audience. And here are a few of the many possible subjects we include in the Bay Leaf:
- California native plants in the wild, including but not limited to places to see them and stories about their life histories and their wild habitats
- Gardening with natives, including less traditional subjects like natives for container gardens and natives as cut flowers
- Pollinators and other wildlife associates of native plants
- Native plant conservation issues
- Stories about people and native plants
Photo essays are also welcome: several photos with descriptive captions that help tell the story. And if you’d like to write for the Bay Leaf but don’t have a specific topic in mind, we can offer suggestions.
We aren’t able to offer financial compensation for articles and photos, but we do offer an enthusiastic audience of 2,500 readers along with the gratitude of our chapter board.
If you’re interested, please contact Sue at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
