Western Confluence Magazine – Call for Story Ideas

I am seeking article ideas for issue 07 of Western Confluence magazine, out in January 2017.

The theme is the science behind our new energy future. What are the most significant energy challenges of our time, and what research is addressing them? What technological, social, policy, or management breakthroughs could lead us into a new energy future? What must we do as a state and as a society to prepare for changes in how we produce and use energy?

We’ll also consider story ideas about any subject relevant to natural resource management in our region for our Field Notes and Science Briefs sections.

To be considered for the upcoming issue, please submit your pitch to editor@westernconfluence.org by noon on Wednesday, June 1, 2016Western Confluence editors and advisors will meet in June to discuss. We’ll answer all pitches by early July.
