Over the last few months, the University of Leicester’s Centre for New Writing and Centre for Environmental Health and Sustainability have been jointly running a writing competition for East Midlands writers on the theme of "Nature, Environment, Sustainability." The competition was open for entries of fiction or creative non-fiction. You can read the original brief about the competition here

We are now delighted to announce the competition shortlist. These ten works will now be considered by our judge, Mark Cocker, and the winner and four runners-up will be announced on the 21st of February.
