Send us a ‘Postcard’!
In each issue of Dakotafire and regularly online at Dakotafire.net, we will feature a “Postcard”—a short, evocative story about an event, person or place, written as if you were telling the story to a friend.
Some ideas: hunting stories, the highlight of a big game, a walk through the field, or a moment in history. Check out four great examples here, here, here and here. If you can match the Postcard to our upcoming theme or the season, that would be great. Our next issue (September/October) will have stories about education. A story about fall would also work. But if your idea doesn’t have to do with either of those, send it anyway!
Stories should in some way relate to the eastern Dakotas and should be about 300-500 words. The story must have a photo to accompany it. Digital images (a minimum of 1000 pixels wide) are preferred; you can also send a photo by mail.
E-mail submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to Dakotafire Media. Postcard Submission. PO Box 603, Frederick, SD 57441.
To be considered for the next issue, we need your submission by Tuesday, August 5.
Deadlines for other 2014 issues:
November/December: Health – Monday, Sept. 22
We look forward to hearing from you!
