McAnulty and Liptrot on Wainwright Prize short lists

Two previous winners feature on the short lists, announced this morning, for the Wainwright Prize. Dara McAnulty, the teenage naturalist who took the 2020 Nature Writing Prize, is shortlisted for the Children’s Prize for Wild Child: A Journey Through Nature, his multi-sensory guide to exploring the nature on your doorstep. Amy Liptrot, whose debut The Outrun won the 2016 Nature Writing Prize, is shortlisted again for The Instant, her memoir about leaving the Orkneys to look for love in Berlin.

The winners will be announced on September 7 at a ceremony at the London Wetland Centre.
