Edited and co-ordinated by Sarah Lowndes, Field Work is an enthralling collection of new nature writing from East Anglia gathered from library workshops and open submissions held across the region. The library workshops run by Lowndes at Cromer and Great Yarmouth libraries offered the opportunity to read and discuss exciting poetry and prose about the natural world written by women and people of colour, to challenge the conception of the genre as predominantly white and male. The resulting anthology presents a fresh new take on the nature writing genre, bringing intersectional considerations of race, class, gender and sexuality to bear on our relationship with the land. Field Work features a diverse range of responses from children, young people and adults who call the landscape of East Anglia their home, whether born and bred or those who have migrated to this land. The anthology has been designed imaginatively by Emily Benton, and is available as a keepsake and inspiration for all those living in, inspired by, or curious about, the wondrous flora and fauna of the English landscape. The anthology features an incredible range of writing styles, subject matter, and authors; including prose, poetry, short stories and life writing.
