Applications are open for the Reed Environmental Writing Award 2023. The Award celebrates writers who achieve both literary excellence and extraordinary insight into the South’s natural treasures and environmental challenges.
In the long, proud tradition of southern literature, writers have often drawn on the region’s unique natural treasures for inspiration and insight—from the haunting cypress swamps of Georgia to the tall mountains of western North Carolina to the rolling fields of the Virginia piedmont. As the South grows and changes, writers are increasingly exploring the South’s relationship with these natural riches and the challenges they face in this time of transition, and SELC’s Reed Environmental Writing Award honors the best of these storytellers.
Southern Environmental Law Center (SELC) annual Writing Award has two categories: Book, for non-fiction books (not self-published), and Journalism, for newspaper, magazine and online articles.
Winners will be announced in January 2023 and invited to read from their winning entry at a special SELC event during the Virginia Festival of the Book, held every March in Charlottesville, Virginia.
