Welcome to Nevada Narratives: Stories, Pictures, and Poetry Set in Nevada’s Past and Present
Hello everyone who keeps Nevada in their hearts and imagination. Here you can connect with the landscape and with people who share their stories set in the state.
In a way, this blog is an experiment. At the moment, I see it as a continually publishing online magazine for readers and writers.
See the video tour for a quick overview of the site.
I will be posting some of my own stories but I also want to showcase the work of others who are driven to write about Nevada. Right now, I’m leaning toward memoir pieces, essays, biographical stories, poetry or other forms that highlight a sense of Nevada.
I hope the writing in Nevada Narratives will reflect the impact of living in an arid state that was once thought of mainly as an obstacle to people moving west to California. Today, most Nevadans live in cities and towns that separate them from the surrounding desert. The desert itself doesn’t easily yield to human domination but I hope this blog will yield accounts of human experiences in Nevada’s cities, towns and deserts.
Writers: Use the Contact Me page to send your thoughts. I’m eager to hear your ideas and hopefully feature much of your writing on this site.
Readers: Keep encouraging this blog and its writers by subscribing, reading, and commenting. I also urge you to think about writing here too.
Thanks to all who visit, read, subscribe to, and write for Nevada Narratives.
