New featured stories

New, original writing on trees.

ROOTED: All Things Arboreal is home to new, original writing by a wide range of authors. Watch for the “New feature” tag. The latest are here:

Existence is Futile” by Jennifer Quartararo

Ribbon Trees” by Kara Dennison

Stay tuned for more. You’ll also find excerpts from ROOTED: The Best New Arboreal Nonfiction, writing prompts from contributors, and notes on the craft of writing about trees.

This site, ROOTED: All Things Arboreal, is inspired by ROOTED, the anthology. In both, we hope to expand the way we think about trees. As Bill McKibben wrote in the anthology’s introduction, “Trees are a gate to the larger world beyond us. They are the opposite of a smart phone; they defy self-absorption.”
