Bona Fide Books

Bona Fide Books seeks literary essays about experiences living and working in the any National Park for a collection about life in our parks. Some go seeking commune with nature; others to escape. Diverse park experiences are desired. Although we enjoy tree-hugging epiphanies, we also want to read about day-to-day life, and the societal, environmental, and existential implications of life in the park. What happened there, and how did it influence your life? (Humor also welcome.) Writers will receive $100 for their essay and one copy of the collection.
Deadline: Jan. 5, 2010. Manuscripts should be typed, double-spaced, and 12 point Times New Roman or Courier font with standard formatting applied; word count is limited to 5,000. Send to with “Permanent Vacation” and the title of work in the subject line.
