Annamaria Weldon speaks about nature writing

Annamaria Weldon has won the inaugural Nature Conservancy Nature Writing Prize of $5,000 for her essay Threshold Country. Judges Mark Tredinnick and Sally Blakeny described it as ‘a marvellously orchestrated, complex meditation on belonging. It is at once assured and yet gently voiced.’

In an interview with Ramona Koval on the Bookshow, Annamaria speaks about her approach to nature writing and the country that inspired her essay. You can listen to a podcast of the discussion here . This is fourteen minutes of worthwhile listening for insights into the genre of nature writing.

Threshold Country will be published in the last issue of Indigo Journal.
