Nature writing is an opportunity to imbue emotion and creatively record our experience of nature and landscape. Brisbane City Council’s Creek Catchments Program invites you to submit your own insights or reflections on ‘The Nature of Brisbane’ to its first ever Nature Writing competition.
Entries will be judged by a panel including local author Dr Inga Simpson (Mr Wigg; Nest; and Where the Trees Were). The winner will have their piece published in a future edition of The Regenerator and will win a book pack of nature-related texts, with the opportunity to attend a nature writing workshop with Dr Inga Simpson. Five runners up will receive a selected nature text and also have the opportunity to attend a nature writing workshop.
Entries should be an essay or prose piece on the theme “The Nature of Brisbane”, with a maximum of 1000 words. The competition opens 1 May 2017 and closes on 30 June 2017.
