How to contribute

We (the editors of Boom and Bust in the Bakken) want to invite you to contribute to the conversation.

You can contribute in more than one way, as long as you do one thing: respond to something someone else has already posted. You can write a blog entry (1000–1500 words is ideal), or send art or photography, or make a video, or anything else that makes sense to you. You can also write about places other than the Bakken (like the tar sands in Alberta, for instance) for a comparative approach. In short, we want to encourage as rich an exchange as possible between academics, artists, poets, and other community members.

If you want to contribute, please send a message through the “contact us” page. In addition to your name and email address, include a brief description of what you’d like to do. Please also include something about you – perhaps where you live or how you came to be interested in the Bakken – so we can get a sense of who you are.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send us a message. Thanks!
