Call for Submissions: Write about Camp NeeKauNis for the Canadian Friend

The Canadian Friend is the magazine of Canadian Yearly Meeting, and is sent to all members of Canadian Yearly Meeting and to regular attenders, and is funded through donations of the membership to further the work and witness of the Religious Society of Friends in Canada.The Canadian Friend features short, non-fiction prose, photos, poetry, book reviews and visual art by Canadian Quakers.

This is a call for submissions to the March 2013 special issue of The Canadian Friend on the theme of Camp NeeKauNis. As Canada’s only Quaker Camp, NeeKauNis’ goals are “to bring people together to build an intentional community through work and play in a safe, inclusive, natural environment… and to nurture the spiritual lives in our community through Quaker Testimonies including integrity, peace, simplicity, equality, justice, and unity with creation”.

We are asking for stories, memories, thoughts, musings, experiences, photos, drawing, or anything you are moved to write about, or share about Camp NeeKauNis. The creative work included will focus on the role of Camp NeeKauNis in the lives of many people near and far. This is a great way to share about Camp NeeKauNis with Canadian Friends and attenders who might not be familiar with camp.

An editorial board will be made up of the Camp NeeKauNis Publicity sub-committee.Selected items will be put into the Canadian Friend special Camp NeeKauNis edition for March 2013. Submissions should be the author’s original work and previously unpublished.

Who can submit? Any Canadian Friend, attender, or any camper or staff of NeeKauNis (past or present)

What is the length of submission? Submissions should not exceed 1000 words.

Submission Date: January 4th, 2013
