Waymaking is a winner

Waymaking, an anthology of prose, poetry and art by women inspired by wild places and outdoor adventure, has been selected as the winner of the Mountain Literature (Non-Fiction) The Jon Whyte Award in the international 2019 Banff Mountain Book  Competition in Alberta, Canada.

I have a long poetic sequence that is dispersed throughout the book about walking the Camino de Santiago.

“This superb collection of women’s short stories, poems, and illustrations is full of gems from end to end. Waymaking is an immersion into the tears, giggles, sighs, and love that have gone into producing this precious yet ground-breaking work.” Paul McSorley, 2019 Book Competition Jury

It’s also on the Guardian’s top travel gift books.
