I thought this might be of interest to your students…we’re sending it primarily to environmental organizations, but welcome first-person essays, as well…
E/The Environmental Magazine is seeking new commentaries for its “Our Planet” weekly newsletter. The commentaries appear on the homepage of our website, and are included in a newsletter sent free via e-mail to tens of thousands of interested people from around the nation. We’re looking for lively essays on your environmental mission, your latest environmental endeavors, or thoughts on nature, and welcome first-person accounts. A length of approximately 800 words is preferable, and accompanying photographs and contact information are welcome. We do not pay for “Our Planet” submissions, but the column would make a good forum to talk about the work you do and reach a new audience.
