Moving between Trinidad and an idyllic English country garden, this lyrical and reflective book is about the search for home.
If you have an idea for a book of nature writing, you haven’t previously published a book, you’re based in the UK or Ireland, and you consider yourself underrepresented in nature writing (whether through ethnicity, disability, class, sex, gender, sexuality or any other circumstances) then the Nan Shepherd Prize is for you. (Still not sure if you qualify? See our submission guidelines.)
The winner receives a £10,000 publishing contract with Canongate. If they don’t already have an agent they also receive an offer of representation with Caro Clarke at Portobello Literary.
