people and wild places

Deadline: 31 March 2009
Go wild this christmas and get some inspiration.

In November 2009 Two Ravens Press will publish an anthology of literary non-fiction that focuses on the relationship between people and the wild places of the British Isles . They are looking for high quality writing which animates a connection between humanity and the natural world where it is not obviously dominated by the human presence. It might articulate a discovery; a new way of seeing; an emotional response; a meditation on a place or who we are as people in a wild world.

The anthology will be edited by Linda Cracknell who is a writer of short fiction (collections: Life Drawing, The Searching Glance) and who received a Creative Scotland Award in 2007 to write a collection of non-fiction essays about walks which follow human stories in 'wild' places (see ).

There are no restrictions on the nationality / residency of contributors to the anthology.
Non-fiction prose only; no fiction or poetry will be considered.
Upper word limit: 8000 words.
Contributions will be accepted by email only, and should be sent as a Microsoft Word attachment to for forwarding to the editor, whose decision on contributions will be final.
Submissions should include a short biographical paragraph.
Royalties from the book will be split equally between all contributors.
