The New Nature Writing: A workshop

Barnwell Country Park. As part of the Oundle Festival of Literature.

Nature writing is now one of the fastest growing genres; the new generation of nature writers are selling like hot cakes. Come and find out about the market, and how to write for it.

It’s no longer the idealised rural life and landscapes of the pastoral poetry tradition. It’s raw, edgy, groundbreaking, thought-provoking, politically challenging, and society changing. It takes in poetry and prose, fiction and non-fiction. It fuses nature writing, travel writing, philosophy and psychology. Its writers heal and find meaning through contact with nature, and so do its readers.

Us nature-writers are no longer regarded as something akin to train spotters. We’re cooler than Madonna! Join us.
