A recent episode of Books and Arts Daily featured an interview with Stephen Wright, winner of the $5,000 Nature Conservancy Australia Nature Writing Prize 2012 for his essay, Bunyip. The program also features tall tales about this mythical creature and is well worth a listen.
This year was the Nature Conservancy’s second biennial competition. Short listed for this year’s award were
- Liam Davison
- Lindsay Simpson
- Margaret Barbalet
- Stephen Wright
- Tamsin Kerr
The Nature Conservancy website promises to have the winning essay available soon.
