The Nan Shepherd Prize for Nature Writing 2019 is open until September 10, 2019.
Free to enter.
The competition aims to celebrate nature writing and to provide an inclusive platform for new and emerging nature writers from underrepresented backgrounds.
The winner will receive a book deal with Canongate – including editorial mentoring and an advance of £10,000 – and the option of literary representation with Jenny Brown Associates.
Open to previously unpublished writers based in the UK and Ireland, who consider themselves underrepresented in nature writing, whether through ethnicity, disability, class, sex, gender, sexuality or any other circumstances.
