Issue 06: The Atlantic Issue
New England's jagged Atlantic coastline stretches for 473 beautiful miles across our region. Further, New England boasts over 6,000 miles of tidal shoreline, from the Southern tip of Byram Point in Connecticut, around the arm of Cape Cod and north to Machias, Maine. With this many miles of rough and rigid beauty, there's no wonder this region will have plenty of stories to tell.
New England was born from the ocean and built from the bounty pulled from the ocean. This region is shaped by the sea-salted air, the waves that pound the rocky cliffs, the frigid temperatures of the sea and the life that thrives in the depths of the Atlantic.
For most, New England is synonymous with coastal life. For our 6th installment, we want to visit all stories that come from the Atlantic. We're interested in boat-builders, surfers, lobstering and fishing communities. We are interested in recipes that embody the salt-water produce that we're provided with and landscapes that have been molded by the pounding of the Atlantic's frigid waves. For Issue 06, we want to hear stories from the sea, old and new. We invite you to join us.
Proposal Deadline is July 15th, Final submission deadline is August 5th.
