The Letter
September 2017

Dear Wild Culture Reader,

After a nourishing summer (we hope you had one too), we’re looking forward to bringing you new material for the autumn 2017 season.

Our goal is to bring you articles that make a positive difference in your life — informative, illuminating or entertaining — and make you want to read more.

To give you the quality you expect, we’re presenting new unpublished articles as well as things that have appeared elsewhere. As valuable as originality is, relevance and good writing are equally important.

A key benefit of the digital publishing economy is that articles often appear on more than one site at a time. Getting the scoop and having what no one else has comes second to giving the reader the content they want, which, in our case, is seen through the wild culture lens.

Therefore, we’re reaching out to our community of thinkers — who know people we don’t — who might have some writing for us. (If you know someone, please introduce us.)

For instance, editor Chellis Glendinning introduced us to Craig K. Comstock, who writes on global affairs, among other subjects. Humorist Marni Jackson, an early contributor to the original Journal of Wild Culture magazine, came forth recently and today you can read her gimlet-eyed meditation on ‘cosmetic Science’.

So, expect more timeless articles from the print magazine in coming months.

As one of the many ways to involve our readers, we want to float some questions you might have something to say about, then publish the results. In October, we’ll be asking what the overused and somewhat tired word ‘spiritual’ means to you. Maybe we can revitalize it.

Also, we’ll be presenting the work of emerging photographers — not necessarily young or professional — who are taking outstanding photos that prick the skin of wild culture.

Of course, donations keep us going — in more ways than one — and help us get better at what we do. Your one-time or monthly donation an support our reaching that goal.

Please donate now.

Yours, in wildness for good,
Whitney Smith
