One of the many outcomes from WILD9, the 9th World Wilderness Congress (6-13 November 2009, Merida, Mexico), was the formation of the International League of Conservation Writers. A development of the 3-day Writers Seminar Series, an esteemed group of environmental writers have joined together. Thus far, the group is a loose collection of environmental writers, with the ‘hub’ of the group at Fulcrum Publishing in Golden, Colorado. The group aspires to provide mentorship for up-and-coming writers, provide camaraderie among top wilderness writers and recognize the importance of writing within the conservation movement. Within the next few months, they will post information on www.ilcwriters.org. Stay tuned for more details from this group!
