You can find journals at New Garden Friends Meeting, Glenwood Coffee and Books, Kathleen Clay Edwards Library, Sacred Garden Bookstore, and this morning I’ll be dropping some off at Deep Roots.
Go find one!
Hello, friendly naturalists!
We’re gathering submissions for our summer issue and would love to hear from you. Please send us your summer-related writing and drawings. Deadline is May 15.
Artwork needs to be a 300 dpi or better jpg. We prefer line drawings to photographs.
If you would like to write something and want suggestions, message us and I’ll send you my wishlist for this issue. I have a few things I’m still looking for.
You can reach us at email@example.com
The spring issue is hot off the presses, and we’ll be handbinding them tonight at The Spartan Trader, from 7 to 9.
Journals will be available around town; we’ll be delivering over the next week, so keep an eye out for locations. Or, you can print out and bind your own at home. Click here for the file and tutorial.
You can find The Friendly Naturalist at Glenwood Coffee and Books, located at 1310 Glenwood Avenue. They’re open from 12 to 6, Tuesday through Sunday, and also for events. Co-owners Mo Kessler and Alan Brilliant have created an open, welcome space for local activism, so there are all kinds of events—check the calendar to see what’s going on and where you’d like to join in.
Here’s further enticement:
We have around 5,000 titles for sale in our collection. Al Brilliant is the owner and publisher of the legendary Unicorn Press and, drawing on that legacy, we carry a large selection of poetry, from the well-known to the up-and-coming. You’ll also find history, philosophy, fiction, women’s studies, feminist theory, queer theory, art, gardening and more on our shelves. We are proud to carry a unique collection of titles you are unlikely to find elsewhere in the Piedmont Triad.
Coffee and more
We love coffee. GC&B serves organic, locally roasted coffee. For the vegans and lactose-wary folks, we always have almond milk on hand, as well as regular milk and cream. If you want something sweeter, we carry Izze sodas, V8 juices, botled water, and some rotating drinks that change each week. We have a variety of snacks as well.
The winter issue is available in these places — take one for yourself and pass one along to someone who would enjoy it.
As of last Saturday, the winter issue is released to the public. This season, the Friendly Naturalist features witty letters, delicious cold-weather recipes, lovely photography and fantastic poetry by local writers and creative folk. Pick up your copy in the New Garden Friends’ Meeting foyer, or the front desk at Kathleen Clay Edwards Library off of New Garden Road. More locations are coming soon, so watch this space!
Now that the Winter Issue is done, our thoughts turn to next spring. If you have any suggestions or would like to submit a piece (we love new faces!), email us at FriendlyNaturalist@gmail.com or provide your contact information in our ask box. If you have any wintry thoughts or media you would like to share, we encouraged you to submit to our blog or to Facebook.com/thefriendlynaturalist.
Hope to see you soon!
