Erupting creativity

The Redoubt Reporter newspaper is seeking submissions of photos and haiku poetry of Mount Redoubt's recent unrest. As many submissions as space allows will be printed in the April 22 edition. A winning photo and haiku will be selected, and will receive a year's subscription to the paper, a T-shirt and be featured in the paper. The deadline for submissions is April 18.

Photos should be of the volcano, its recent eruptions, steam plumes, ash or anything related to it. Digital submissions should be at least 220 dpi resolution at 6 inches wide, if horizontal, or four inches wide, if vertical, in JPEG, EPS, PDF or TIFF format. Digital photos may be e-mailed to redoubtreporterphotos@gmail.com or saved to a disk and mailed or dropped off at our office, 155 Smith Way, Suite 205 C, Soldotna, AK, 99669. Photo prints may be mailed or dropped off. Please include the photographer's name, town of residence, when and where the photo was taken, and contact information.

Poems must follow the haiku format — three lines, the first being five syllables, the second line seven syllables, and the third line five syllables. Please include the author’s name, town of residence, age category (student or adult), and contact information. Poems may be e-mailed to redoubtreporter@alaska.net, or mailed or dropped off at our office, at the address listed above.
