  • Additional info

    We seek work that conjures the experiences, observations, and insights of backcountry journeys. By “backcountry,” we mean away from paved roads on journeys undertaken by foot, skis, snowshoes, kayak, canoe, horse, or any other non-motorized means of conveyance. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the work published in our first four issues. Previously published work is welcome, so long as the rights are yours. Payment: Contributors will receive two copies of the journal in which their work appears, and a 50% discount on additional copies. They are also entitled to purchase single copies of other issues of Deep Wild, past and future (supplies permitting) at the 50% rate. Writers are allowed one free submission in any open-reading period. If you wish to submit work in more than one genre, submit your first file for free, and any additional file(s) via the Tip Jar.
