Going to Ground; An Anthology of Nature and Place

Going to Ground; An Anthology of Nature and Place


In 2013 a group of writers and poets set up The Clearing, an online journal for new writing about nature and place, from new and established writers. The aim was to create a dedicated space to explore and celebrate landscapes, finding distinctive and sometimes startling visions of place: rural, urban, suburban, industrial, post-industrial, fantastical and natural.

Since then, under a rotating series of editors and now under the wing of Little Toller Books, The Clearing has grown an audience around the world, supporting writing projects and has helped emerging writers at the beginning of their careers. In Going to Ground is some of the best and most distinctive writing from The Clearing’s archive of hundreds of essays and poetry from well-known and emerging writers.

This is the new writing of the Anthropocene, startling visions of our landscapes. The themes are natural, political, historical, archaeological, ecological, scientific, political, personal, urgent and true, from more than thirty extraordinary writers. Edited by Jo Woollcott of Little Toller Books.
