Deziree Volume 3 Open for Submissions: Adventure is Out There!

Ellie Badge

Deziree Volume 3 for April/May of 2017 is now open for submissions.  For Volume 3 we are looking for work dealing with adventure, exploration, and discovery.  Stories can be fiction or non-fiction.  If you want an idea of what we are looking for, think of the works of Robert Louis Stevenson, Jules Verne, The Swiss Family Robinson, the writings of real life explorer’s T.E. Lawrence and Richard Francis Burton.  In terms of photography we’d love to see photographs from world travel, nature/wildlife photography, and photos of urban exploration.  Other visual arts should be in a similar vein.  Send us your swashbuckling best!

In the words of famed explored Charles F. Muntz “Adventure is out there!”

Photograph/artwork: Hand crafted “Ellie Badge” inspired by Pixar’s Up by Janelle Jex.  This badge, as fans of Disney and Pixar well know, signifies membership in an exclusive Adventurer’s Club and is the highest conceivable honor for adventurers and Wilderness Explorers alike.
