Narratives of Desire:
Finding Home — A Clayoquot Sound Anthology
Different people define home differently—in general—and
particularly with reference to nature. We are searching for prose works
which discuss the connection between nature and home. The resulting
anthology will contain selections that explore this topic with particular
reference to Clayoquot Sound.
Not just as a settled place, home can be many things—a state
of mind, a connection to the past, a relationship or a solitary quest.
We are looking for writers who take this basic value of our culture
and reshape it as they search for solace in or with nature.
Clayoquot Sound has been many things to many writers: home, natural
sanctuary, source of renewal, point of desire, mythic landscape. We
encourage writers to frame their submissions around this place.
Please send Non-Fiction Prose up to 20 typed, double-spaced pages to
both editors electronically or by mail. Previously written work (essays
or selection from a book) will be considered. The deadline is September
