FYR ~ For Your Reflection
FYR is a new online literary magazine that will publish writing, illustrations, and photographs created in response to recent fires. FYR will be live online by the end of October 2020 at www.2020FYR.com.
People of all ages and locations are invited to submit writing of any kind (poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, or anything in between) involving fire in some way. Your submission should be 500 words or less. Two different writing submissions (one poetry, one story) are allowed per person. You may include original artwork or photography with your writing. If you only send art or photos, all attempts will be made to include it.
Email your submission to 2020FYR@gmail.com and include your full name, age, phone number, and city/state. By submitting, you acknowledge that there may be minor edits before publishing. Every effort will be made to preserve the spirit of the piece; however, you will be contacted to discuss any significant changes. By submitting, you agree to release your submission to be published, shared online (with your name, location, and age), and printed.
Questions and Submissions
By writing or drawing what you feel, you can express yourself and submit it to FYR Literary Magazine by emailing your creation to: 2020FYR@gmail.com. Art should be photographed. Remember to include your name, age, phone number, and location. Have fun and be creative!
Here Are Questions to Help Brainstorm and Write
What do you know about wildfires?
Have you been affected by a fire? Has anything changed in your life because of a fire? Do you know anyone affected by a fire? Are you scared?
Have you seen a fire or any photos of fires?
Do you smell smoke? Are you able to breathe clean air?
Have you had to evacuate? Do you know anyone who has had to evacuate? Are they okay? Where did they go?
What do you think of the orange sky people have seen?
Would you be a good firefighter?
Would you rather drive a truck, dig fire lines, spray water, and/or rescue people? Would you want to operate a helicoptor that drops water?
Would you want to be the pilot of an airplane that sprays the fire?
What job would you want to perform to help people?
Would you adopt an animal to help families affected by a fire?
If you were told to evacuate in 15 minutes, what would you do?
Do you know anyone who has lost their house? How do you feel about this? What do you know about fire safety?
What would you do if your house was on fire? Do you have a plan? Will you draw a photo of fire?
FYR is for all people of all ages. Some people will never have their work published and this is a great opportunity for people to express themselves, be published, and be part of an inclusive worldwide project!
