The Delta Protection Commission is currently collecting historical and cultural materials on the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Selections and excerpts from these materials may be published in an anthology for high school and college readers as well as for those interested in learning more about this region’s rich culture and heritage.
We are collecting writing that represents the experiences of Native Americans, travelers and settlers, owners and workers, and rural and urban dwellers in the Delta from pre-1800 through the 21st century, including those which suggest alternative futures for the region. We will consider materials such as short stories, novels, family histories, biographies, autobiographies, poems, and songs.
If you know of manuscripts, citations, archives, or leads on sources that we can research, please contact us.
The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2019.
