BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Folklife Program at Western Kentucky University is looking for proposals for articles and other pieces documenting Kentucky’s folklife.

The program said in a news release that this is the first call for proposals for the multimedia digital publication and said the magazine “explores the diversity of expressive cultures within Kentucky.”

In addition to articles, the magazine is looking for ideas for photo essays, documentary film and audio, interviews and oral histories and performances.

Proposals of about 200 to 400 words can be submitted to kyfolklife@wku.edu with the subject heading “Kentucky Folklife Magazine Proposal.” Published features receive a contributor’s honorarium.
