Alliance for Sustainable Communities looking for all types of writing and art

Latest in a series of posts on the Arts in Bethlehem

Peter Crownfield is officially retired but spends most of his time working with students in his role as internship coordinator for the Alliance for Sustainable Communities–Lehigh Valley.

We are making some big changes to our Sustainable Lehigh Valley booklet.  We’re going to use the space now used for detailed listings to feature more writing and art — and we  are also open to hybrid forms such as graphic stories or essays.  [Read the Guidelines!]  
One reason for this is that while the sciences can provide facts — we need to make some key decisions — they don’t really help us understand the ethical & moral dimensions at all — and many people ignore scientific writing or studies.  We also know that good writing and art can catch people’s attention and make a real difference in raising awareness.
We welcome submissions from all ages and backgrounds, and we’re looking for:
  • Writing —  short storiespoemsdescriptive features, and essays 
  • Visual art — drawings, photographs, and other forms that reproduce well
  • Hybrid forms — including graphic stories or essays, editorial cartoons, and more 
It has to be related to sustainability, of course — but nearly everything is! The Alliance’s view of sustainability has always been very broad, extending far beyond traditional environmental concerns.     [See our  Vision, Mission, & Goals.]
Please consider submitting something yourself — and please spread the word about this new opportunity to help raise public awareness.  (I am sure you also know others who also have the talent and skill to express themselves in one of these ways.)
We are now accepting submissions for our new fall issue!  Please contact or if you have any questions.
