Dearborn Big Read Authentic writing experience-get published in a book!!!

Call for Entries

We’re sending out a call for stories, poems, or essays regarding nature with an emphasis on trees and plants. The call is open to everyone, and the deadline is November 30, 2019. Submissions will be compiled and published as a book. Copies will then be added to the library collection for checkout. We will also sell copies as a fundraiser for future Big Reads in Dearborn. To differentiate this book from Call of the Wild Dearborn (our first community anthology), we are not looking for entries on animals or wildlife.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Do you have a favorite tree from your childhood?
  • A poem about trees/plants? How about a haiku?
  • A flower you want to write about?
  • A true story or a fictional narrative involving trees or plants?
  • What do trees mean to you?

Can’t come up with something regarding trees or plants? How about writing about gardening or your favorite nature trail? How about focusing on nature in a more general sense? Or how about something science related? Hope Jahren is a geobiologist who mainly studies plants, trees, and soil. Remember: the world is your lab. Or how about something on friendship? Jahren portrays a close friendship she has with Bill, her lab partner.

Click here to submit your work. We prefer you to fill out this online entry form and email your work as an attachment to thebigreaddearborn@gmail.com.

However, if you do not have access to a computer, you may mail your submission, along with a filled-out participation form, to:
Dearborn Public Library
22100 Michigan Ave.
Dearborn, MI 48124
