Open call to authors: Our Ocean’d Earth
OceanCare is partnering with Stormbird Press on their open call for Our Ocean’d Earth contributions. This call is for nonfiction or fiction writing that conveys one clear and unified message: that our oceans are worth fighting for. The ideal submission will be a short essay or story of 1000 to 3000 words that will reflect Stormbird Press’ core principle: defending nature and empowering communities. The anthology will be distributed by OceanCare and featured in Stormbird Press’ 2023 catalogue.

Each month, starting in January, we will send you a stunning picture of a marine animal to download for your desktop and mobile wallpaper, with a positive message or a fascinating fact.
