Farmers Write is a column in our quarterly print newsletter that allows EFAO members and friends to share real-life short stories, creative writing, or poetry on topics inspired by life as a farmer.


For each issue of the print publication, we will provide a theme, and we want you to share stories from your own life as they relate to that topic.  


These topics are intentionally broad – please feel free to express yourself 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 350 words.  We are able to publish stories anonymously if that allows you to be freer in your writing.  


Check out some of the past submissions here.
