Here is a message from Matt Gatie:
“Hi, my name is Matt Gatie. I am a journalism student at Flux magazine.We are working on a project called Dear Oregon and The Lane Literary Guild may be interested in this opportunity. I will paste a prompt below. Write a “Dear Oregon” letter sharing your slice of Oregon. What are your hopes and dreams for Oregon? What worries or frustrates you about your state or community? What unites Oregonians and what divides them? Tell Oregon what you hate about it and what you love about it. Be open. Be honest. Speak your mind. Send Flux your “Dear Oregon” letters signed with your name, city and a way for us to reach you. Our goal is to listen, as journalists, in order to foster conversations in new and innovative ways. Flux will highlight some of the best letters in our 2016/2017 issue both in print and on our website. Email your letters to email@example.com or send them to Flux Magazine, C/O Todd Milbourn, Allen Hall, 1275 University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403.”
