It is with great pleasure that today I inform you that the International Literary Contest "Nature 2016" has begun!
Unfortunately, regardless of the efforts of many people all across the globe, our mother land, planet earth,
continues under the threat of the non sustainable activities that all of us believe are needed to our daily life.
In this context, the text of this contest in 2015 deserves to be published again here
The forest breaths and as a result the planet Earth also breaths, giving us the oxigen that we need to live.
During the Winter, in the north of the planet, where the majority of the dry land exists, many trees
lose their leafs and the carbon dioxide increases in the atmosphere producing a small increase in global temperature.
During the Spring and Summer all the trees of the planet grow leafes and they capture carbon dioxide making the weather
lightly fresher than it would be without their action.
To tell you the truth the trees are pressious everywhere, even if they are alone in a grey street of
a city or together with a small group of other in a beautiful artificial garden. To grow a tree is to grow a friend,
it is an act of poetry and who knows of the tales that the sun beams crossing their branches can inspire.
All the insects of the world and all the animals don’t care about written poetry because they have the visual
poetry of flowers in a bed and the colorful grace of reefs. They purely enjoy the beautiful gifts of life!
But, do you know that if the mean world sea temperature rises by 2 degrees celcious that would cause serious
damage to reefs? And do you know that the big secret of dogs is their friendship and friendly approach towards us?
Certainly, you feel that every living creature is Nature; we are Nature and we also deserve a poem…
To protect flowers is to protect us.
Life is special and this is the reason why we invite you to submit your best poem or your perfect tale.
The objective this year is to inspire you to write poetry that might be for
songs’ lyrics, taking into account the connection between Nature and Freedom (Nature
linked with other connected words: Love; Peace; Justice; etc).
We want to select 20 poems and 4 stories for an anthology that will be published as an e-book in Windows System.
Every person in the world can participate as long as the submitted work is written in English;
Each person can submit one or two poems, with no word limit, and one story, with maximum 3000 words;
A First place, a Second place and a Third place will be identified.
First place prize: support in the creation of a new and original e-book!
All the selected works will be part of the Anthology, that will be available for free for at least 100 countries;
Deadline date: 31 December 2016;
By 31 January 2017 results will be announced at http://talesforlove.blogs.sapo.pt;
The Anthology will be published during November 2015 and the first prize will be given as soon as possible;
Works should be sent to Rui M. at firstname.lastname@example.org together with name, works, country and e-mail contact. Put "International Literary Contest “Poems and Short Fiction for Nature – 2015”" in subject line. Payment of the donation must be done using PayPal to .

I'm sure that everyone knows about the environmental tragedy that took place in Alberta (Canada). An enormous fire destroyed during
many weeks the forest of this region and, at the same time, also consumed a substantial part of the lives of many people...
their memories and dreams. Nevertheless, we believe, they keep their willingness to build a new FUTURE!
This year we try to help in the reforestation of Alberta! If you wish to DONATE to plant trees, please contact:
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
