Nancy Gladstone

Nancy won the Dan Hemingway prize in 1993 for a set of darkly-themed short stories. At the time, the prize included an Inter-rail ticket across Europe, and she is still firm friends with her travelling companions Hester and Beth, also old Cherwellians. Highlights included the summit of Vesuvius, the cliffs of Santorini and swimming in Sorrento. The experience gave her the confidence to travel solo to Canada as a backpacker in her gap year and later, to visit Madagascar to work on wildlife conservation and research projects.

Since 2005, she has been working on the PACE project, which shares resources with environmental educators in Africa, and has recently edited a Ugandan version of the education pack. She also produces creative environmental education projects in the UK for Siren Conservation Education including co-writing two imaginative Talking Tree trails, a signed trail at Hinksey Heights in Oxford and an audio trail in the Chilterns (click here).

Nancy currently runs occasional craft and poetry sessions for schoolchildren in Oxfordshire, as part of a team working on Siren's new online project helping people to connect to nature through art. Her own Naturebook page allows her to share her love of nature through photography.
