Hey aspiring writers, the Idaho Trappers Association has been self publishing a magazine for members. Always looking for content. Its a great way to get your stuff in print if you're so inclined. Memberships are pretty cheap in the big scheme of things and the magazine is a fun bonus. No need to be an Idaho trapper and to my knowledge reasonably well written material isnt turned away. If you're interested I can get you submission info.

I had three writings in FFG another in trap and trails

Way back in high school
Over 35 years ago I had a writing published that I didn’t even known my English teacher had submitted until I received an award for it.

I have a couple more articles for FFG that are started but I have just stalled on

I have had a hunting story published in a small living history quarterly and a few articles in Primitive Archer magazine. I really enjoy writing, took several classes in college for it and did well. Some times its just hard to sit down and start.

I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

If we're laying our publishing credits on the table, I have a few in the non-fiction genre, most notably an article in F-F-G about a dozen years back. I keep meaning to do another trapping article for that magazine, but my time is mostly occupied with writing fiction.

I have ten stories, ranging from a short-short to a novella in length, that were published in mystery, science fiction, and fantasy magazines. My fiction has won prizes, awards, and other honors, including two $500 cash prizes.

I'm a member of Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America and Mystery Writers of America.

One accomplishment of which i am proud is that, so far as I know, I wrote and had published the first American science fiction trapping story, "Trapping the Pleistocene." Other writers have written stories about time travelers hunting mega-fauna of the past, but I wrote the first trapping SF story with that theme.

Right now I'm attending the Stonecoast MFA program at the University of Southern Maine, focusing on popular fiction. At school in the very heart of liberalism--East Coast academia. Send help!

Quite the credentials, James.
I have yet to be published, although it is a bucket list item of mine. My literary interest also tend towards science fiction and fantasy.
Maybe some day I'll complete a story that's longer than a 3 stanza poem.


Just happy to be here.

I've written one short how to on turtle trapping.

I love to read mostly fiction, mysteries, thrillers, etc. I've written one crime story that was fiction.
