The Curlew is a quarterly magazine dedicated to fine writing about the natural world, drawn from considered thought, not dashed off in haste and chased with regret like most of today's communications. In The Curlew are presented ideas, emotions, imaginings – but most of all beauty. It seeks for passion, images that make us smile or shiver, word pictures that stay with us and make us think. In other words, writing that enriches our lives. The editor, award-winning writer Lynn Parr, has published poetry, fiction and non-fiction in Ireland, the UK, USA and Australia. As an ecologist and academic, she has worked for national conservation organizations and charities in the UK and USA. Profits from The Curlew will benefit organizations and charities dedicated to protecting habitats, stopping wildlife trafficking and educating people worldwide about conservation and animal welfare.
