Want to participate? Fabulous! This is how it works:
1. You live in Tucson, or lived in or visited Tucson and miss it wildly. Love letters to Tucson is about seeing Tucson through the eyes of the inhabitants and telling their stories.
2. Write your love letter to Tucson and send it to the email below.
It can be short and sweet, or a narrative. You can write Tucson a love poem or haiku. It is up to you.
Write about what you love about Tucson. Perhaps write about your neighborhood or some quirky aspect of Tucson that appeals to you. Write about specific places, or season, maybe an event, or perhaps even a memory you have of Tucson. It doesn’t have to be all roses and light, it can be about what you love about Tucson despite the things that drive you batty about Tucson. It can be the story of how you came to be in Tucson or what kept you here once you arrived. It’s up to you. We want to hear about your Tucson.
3. Arrange the photoshoot or send us some photos
Pick a location and we’ll arrange a time to meet for the photoshoot. The photoshoot will probably take around an hour, typically first thing in the morning or in the hour or so before sunset. Heads up, this project is a voluntary endeavor and times are constrained some by the rest of life.
Oh, and don’t worry I’ll show you the pictures before we publish them so you’re happy with the ones we’ve picked.
Finally, know someone with a fab story to tell, but not necessarily part of the digital age? Or just not checking out this space? Share this with them, and if they’re interested let me know at the address below. We want to hear Granny’s story too.
