The Avalon Writers Cabin will be a place to publish and celebrate young writers. Since Avalon’s inception, we have seen an influx of young visitors to the preserve. We love to hear your voices on the trails -and now to see them on the page. Ancient and contemporary writers alike have been inspired by the sea, sky and forest. The Writers Cabin will carry on that tradition by giving our next generation of nature writers a place of their own.
Spring brings so much change to Avalon Nature Preserve. The tree canopy is filling in. Wildflower meadows are beginning to reach up for the summer sun. Woods are flush with nesting and a riot of birdsong. And light is lingering a little longer each day.
Change is all around us. While our seasons have continued to turn this year, the world as we know it has transformed in ways that we could not have imagined last March.
As we head through spring and towards summer, we welcome your writing about transformation. Perhaps you will write about the changing spring landscape around you. Or maybe you will reflect on the way life has been altered during COVID-19. As long as you touch on the theme of “transformation”, we will leave the content of your work up to you, as usual.
