The Legacy and Future of Nature Writing

To mark the tenth year of the Wainwright Prize which has flourished in popularity over the last decade, this event will focus on both the rich legacy and hopeful future of nature writing – the stand-out books, the titans of the genre, the newcomers, and those changing and diversifying the genre for the better. This celebratory event will bring together previous winners, including Amy Liptrot and James Aldred, past and present Wainwright Prize judges, and shortlisted authors including Elizabeth-Jane Burnett and Amy-Jane Beer.
