What do forests mean to you? If you're a writer with a passion for nature, we want to hear from you.
From observing our expert foresters and wildlife rangers at work to watching our world-class scientists, two writers will embark on a journey to understand the forests we have looked after over the past century.
We’re looking for innovation and imagination, and welcome all forms of storytelling. We’re particularly interested in hearing from under-represented groups to diversify the voices and stories found in nature writing.
Deadline for submission is midnight 14th January 2019.
We can offer you:
Unique access to our nation’s forests
Promotional support and a platform to share your work
How to apply
Please send a current CV and pitch outlining your interest in the opportunity and how you might respond creatively to our nation’s forests. Spoken word or short story, poetry or prose…you decide.
We will accept pitches in writing (max 750 words), video (3 max minutes via YouTube or via Dropbox/WeTransfer) or audio (max 3 minutes via SoundCloud)
