Ghosts of the Landscape


Ghosts of the Landscape is a new nature writing competition for young and adults writers, run by ourselves in partnership with Derbyshire Wildlife Trust.

The prize is designed to raise awareness of the plight of Derbyshire’s moorlands, and the practices that have stripped the land of its wild inhabitants, including its crucial ability to capture carbon.
