We are starting a new column in our printed newsletter called “Farmers Write”. This is an opportunity for EFAO members to share real-life short stories on topics inspired by life as a farmer.


We have provided topics for the 2020 year and are asking you to share stories from your own life as they relate to the topic.  


The topics are intentionally broad – please feel free to express in a way that makes sense for you and your story. We aren’t as concerned about style and perfect writing, as we are about great stories that others might find truth in as well. We suggest a word limit of 250 to 450 words but are happy to help edit a story or post a longer version on the EFAO blog. We are able to publish stories anonymously if that allows you to be more free in your writing.  


Upcoming Topics


Spring – Farm Animals  

Deadline March 15


Fall – Long Days 

Deadline June 15


Winter –  Breaking The Rules  

Deadline September 15


Please make a submission here. You can also suggest future Farmers Write topics.
