In a time when everything seems fast-paced, we invite children and young-adults to slow down….to a snail’s pace! In the spirit of the snail, we are encouraging participants to be unhurried and thoughtful in creating nature poetry and artwork.
MISSION: THE SNAIL MAIL NATURE TRAIL IS A CREATIVE PATHWAY TO BUILD A HEALTHY CONNECTION AND RECIPROCAL RELATIONSHIP WITH NATURE. By publishing and showcasing nature poetry and artwork from children and young-adults, we hope to inspire our future generations to act and conserve our natural world.
WHO: TINY SEED PRESS – A NATURE-FOCUSED LITERARY ORGANIZATION. We welcome you, ALL children and young-adults, to take a walk with us down the Snail Mail Nature Trail! Please join us in a creative, global movement for young nature lovers.
WHAT: NATURE INSPIRED POETRY AND ARTWORK ON A POSTCARD. Send us your nature-inspired poems and artwork on a postcard! Postcards can be purchased or handmade; be creative, try using the blank side of your favorite cereal box!
WHEN & WHERE: Nature inspired poems and artwork will be accepted globally
