WHERE TO CONTRIBUTE

Share your passion for the Petaluma River by contributing your creativity to Voice of The River.

Beginning in 2010, Voice of the River is an ongoing public expression through poetry, painting, photography, prose, and music. You can contribute a page (PDF) to the circulating, one-of-a-kind anthology, or a video to our video blog.

It's easy to contribute! Take a moment. Imagine the river. Walk along its banks. Write a poem or story. Paint or draw a river view. Send a page to us. Or contribute short video (email for arrangements).
