Submissions for this biennial writing prize close today, but I thought it worth posting information about it so that you can start on something to send to the next round in 2013. ‘The WILDCARE Tasmania Nature Writing Prize is an international literary prose competition. In aiming to lift the profile of nature writing, it helps put words and actions together in the cause of caring for our world.’
The application form defines nature writing as ‘literary prose whose major inspiration and subject matter is the natural world, not necessarily excluding its significance for humans and/or their interactions with it.’
Winners will be announced at this year’s Ten Days on the Island celebration.
