I’m working on a book about kids, family movement, and movement ecology. I’d love to include your stories about how you move with your kids, how your kids move with and without you, and how you’ve changed habits and habitats to get more movement and nature time into your family’s life. Everyone’s stories matter tremendously; the more diverse a range of stories, the more folks this book can speak to.
We want you to share your circumstances, and your solutions. Urban and rural and everything in between are welcome, as are international submissions and submissions from those with (or those who have kids with) disabilities.
There’s no particular story we’re after. Transitioning to more movement, more nature, and more natural movement is a lifelong journey of small steps, and often small steps are the most attainable for others just starting out. If you’ve found any step, big or small, that helped you create magic and movement for your family, we’d love to include it in Grow Wild.
Submission Guidelines: Word count: 100–350 words (approximately 500-2000 characters)
Photos: Photos are welcome (but not required) with your submission. Photos need to be high resolution (at least 300 ppi at 4x6 inches).
By submitting the form below, you agree to having your words and images printed in the book Grow Wild, as well as in marketing materials for that book. We will notify you if you are going to be included, and, in the case of editing, send you a draft for your approval.
Anyone whose story is used in the book will receive three signed copies of Grow Wild when it comes out!
All submissions must be received by July 31st, 2019.
