Accretionary wedge reminder: April 23

Posted by Callan Bentley

A friendly reminder that I’ve volunteered to host the next edition of The Accretionary Wedge, and I’ve chosen “heroes” as the theme.

I invite all participants (geobloggers and geoblog readers alike) to contribute stories of their heroes. It’s time to pay tribute to the extraordinary individuals who helped make your life, your science, and your planet better than they would otherwise have been.

The deadline for submission of posts will be Friday, April 23. That gives you until the end of next week.

Once you’ve published your piece, leave a link to it at the original “call for posts” post. On the weekend of April 24-25, I’ll aggregate all the submissions into a thoughtfully-composed masterpiece post and put it up for everyone to savor. Thanks in advance for your participation.

If you’re a geoblog reader, but not a geoblogger yet yourself, then I’ll be happy to publish your story here. We all have heroes worthy of sharing, right? I encourage readers to get involved; I’ll be happy to help facilitate.
