Congratulations to local nature writer Nicola Chester!

We are huge fans of Nicola's writing - and have been for years. We are so pleased that she has won this prestigious literary prize. Richard Jefferies Society chairman Professor Barry Sloan, one of the panel of judges, said: "On Gallows Down is not only an eloquent celebration of nature and landscape and of their indispensable value for human mental and emotional health and well-being; it is also unsentimental and alert to the dangers that threaten wildlife and the open countryside, and shows the author’s own experiences of resistance to suggestions for more environmentally friendly land management. It will appeal to a wide readership both as a personal narrative and for its thoughtful reflections on the challenges facing the natural world". The paperback of On Gallow's Down will be available next month, so do place any pre-orders with us.

There are two places left for a nature writing workshop organised by Paperboat - so don't hang around if you's like to be inspired by this award-winning writer to produce your own work.
