We are excited to announce the second year of our partnership with the Saskatchewan History and Folklore Society and Folklore magazine, a quarterly print magazine edited by Mike Chartier. We invite ongoing submissions for our Saskatchewan Environmental History series: “Coulees to Muskeg.” Accepted submissions will be published twice: first on our website and then in an upcoming issue of Folklore magazine.

Final submissions should be between 500 and 2,000 words in length. We will consider any environmental history topic that relates to Saskatchewan, including transregional and comparative topics. We especially invite contributions that explore the intersection of Saskatchewan environmental history and:

  • Labour
  • Gender
  • Sexuality
  • Indigeneity
  • Politics
  • Animals
  • Urbanity or Rurality
  • Geography
Folklore Magazine

Please send proposals and/or drafts to Jessica DeWitt, jessicamariedewitt@gmail.com. Submissions will be accepted and published on a rolling basis through August 2021.

*Submissions should be between 500 and 2,000 words and include images if possible. Please use Chicago Style endnote citations. Please submit a headshot and bio for use in  Folklore magazine. Folklore authors are paid $1.50 per column inch for published submissions, plus a complimentary copy.
