Roberts Creek

Roberts Creek Unincorporated

Forty years or so ago, the book “Remembering Roberts Creek” was published.

It covered the very early days, up until the 50s. In its way, it was good; but so much of what the Creek means to us really happened in the 60s and 70s.

Ed Lands and your loyal publisher are putting together a follow-up to that work, and we are looking for your input. Stories. Art. Spoken word. What was your experience in those days?

Ed and I hope to publish a vibrant, strange, shocking, revealing, odd . . . oh, the adjectives are endless! Something memorable. A portmanteau.

If you have a story to tell, a song to sing, an image to show,  then, you can submit your idea or completed piece by email to creekmemories@gmail.com We’ll be canvassing you in other ways and in other venues; Coast Independent is just one.

We are looking for pieces in the 300-400 word range, though if you have more to say then fill yer boots!

Okay?
