This is historically the time in the calendar when I would reach out to everyone with a “call to action” for the Summer issue of Tenkara Angler. While we’re not planning on doing the quarterly e-magazine flipbook on Issuu anymore, we’d still love to publish your original articles, photography, artwork, fly tying recipes, conservation initiatives, gear reviews, (or if you’re a vendor, gear releases), etc…
As such we’re planning on holding a Tenkara Angler “Summer Showcase” of new, original content toward the end of June. The Showcase will be a celebration of tenkara and fixed-line fishing! We will release a new community-sourced article or two every day for a week. (Perhaps longer, depending on the number of submissions.)
Think of it as the quarterly magazine release, just without the option to purchase a print copy. Truthfully, few ever did. Plus, since it’s strictly digital, we have flexibility to include more photography, and even video if appropriate! If well received, this will likely become the new quarterly format moving forward.
The submission deadline will be Friday, June 19th, with the hopes of publishing the Showcase over the last weeks of June.
As always, submissions can be sent directly via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or if you’d prefer, I’ve created a simple submission form that can be used at any time, even outside of quarterly deadlines.
So, if you’re into sharing your tenkara photos or stories online, be it Facebook, Instagram, or elsewhere… and you’re enjoying the updated Tenkara Angler website, we’d love to present your community-sourced content, (with a little of our own mixed in), for many seasons to come.
Senior Editor, Tenkara Angler
