American Whitewater is looking for more story and photo contributions from canoeists, rafters, and C1ers. If you've always wished our magazine highlighted more folks who paddle like you do--with a single blade--this is your chance to make that desire a reality.


Our September/October issue will feature canoes and rafts, and we hope to be able to fill it with great content. So if you typically paddle a raft or canoe, or you know people who do, please contribute. We're looking for stories about influential people, rivers where rafters and canoeists are an especially strong part of the paddling community, river trips featuring single bladed boaters, new trends or technology in rafting or canoeing, and anything else you can think of. Please contact us if you have a story to tell--even if it hasn't been written yet.


The deadline for this issue is July 21. Please contact us sooner than that if you think you'd like to contribute so that we can save space for your story and photos. For more information or to discuss a story idea, e-mail


Thanks, and happy paddling!
