Call for Submissions: In the RED

Post by Ascentionist » Tue Jan 17, 2017 3:44 pm

I'm putting together a collection of short writing pieces set in and around or about the Red River Gorge. Short fiction or non-fiction, poetry, essay, and really great trip reports will all be considered. For all work except poetry I'm looking for 500-5,000 words and will consider anything up to 10,000 words in length. Please submit in Word doc format with a short author bio to [email protected]

My intent was to include writing about any and all kinds of outdoor activities but so far its all been about climbing. I'd love to include a few more great stories.

Thank you!

Have you ever heard the story of the Miller fork Dick doctor? Classic non fiction.

Or the "my boy just sent Twinkie" story? One of the most epic examples of gratuitous spray. Not sure that is what Chris is looking for, but it is one of my favorites.

Or the group of locals going through the gorge with assault riffles, at 2 AM, in torrential downpour, with live fire random shooting back near Military Wall one night. We didn't sleep much that night. The early days of the gorge were a bit crazy.

This might be better than the Miller Fork Dick Doctor story. Top notch.

I ran over a cat in front of the cat lady's house once.

I think that is inadmissible unless you either describe how you prepared it for dinner or used it for a foot mat.
training is for people who care, i have a job.

Haha yup on the way into Miller? When I was 16 I backed over a kitten outside Daniel Boone store and my nickname became "kitten killer" that summer. Don't worry I felt bad about it, I didn't become a psychopath until years later.

YES. Please include the proper emoticons to accurately convey the gravity of the situation:

I've heard the Dick Doctor story (top notch), but never the My Bro Just Sent Twinkie story. Any way an entertaining summary can be provided here?

I think bcombs posted the story on here a long time ago. Maybe a dig through his post history will find it.

The theory of evolution is just as stupid as the theories of gravity and electromagnetism.

You don't visit for a few days and all hell persists.

Man, I wish I had access to some of those old KY Wilderness threads!

If there are good threads point me to them and I'll ask for permission.
