Ecotone’s Contribution to Evolution

Ecotone‘s latest issue is a whopping 430 pages – a double issue – in celebration of the bicentennial of Charles Darwin’s birth and the sesquicentennial of the publication of The Origin of Species. The editorial alone (“Hey, Hey, We’re the Monkeys) is worth the issue price, in reading how David Gessner once taught a course called “When Thoreau Met Darwin.”

The issue includes winners of the 2008 Ecotone Evoluntion Contest, judeged by Jennifer Ackerman:

First Prize: Emily Taylor for her short story “Beginning”
Second Prize: Kathryn Miles for her essay “Dog Is Our Copilot
Third Prize: Lynn Pederson for her poem “On Reading about the Illness adn Death of Darwin’s Daughter Annie

And a shout out to Jennifer Sinor for her essay, “The Certainty of Spinning,” and for Birkerts fans (me!), he’s here too, with the nonfiction piece, “The Points of Sail.”
