      Announcing a new journal: *The LBJ: Avian Life, Literary Arts*
      http://www.literarybirdjournal.org

      The LBJ is a biannual publication dedicated to birds and creative writing.
      Its title is drawn from the acronym for “little brown job,” used by birders to
      describe those difficult-to-identify species, such as many sparrows. While
      there are popular magazines (Audubon), scientific journals (The Auk), and other
      newsletters about birds, The LBJ is a uniquely literary venue, publishing new
      creative nonfiction, fiction, poetry, narrative scholarship, and literary
      journalism of the feathered variety. In its pages, The LBJ hopes to encourage an
      appreciation and practice of environmental literature, and increasing
      collaboration between scientists, conservationists, and artists. It seeks innovative
      creative writing and literary reportage—the best writing about birds to be found.

      The Sparrow Prizes for Poetry and Prose

      For its inaugural issue, The LBJ is pleased to announce two modest prizes of
      $300 each for the best submissions of poetry and prose. For poetry, each entry
