Coffee table book freelance writing brief October 2020

We are seeking quotes from suitable consultants to provide research and writing services for the production of a ‘coffee’ table book (‘the book’) for the 10 Deserts Project (10DP).

The book will be full colour aimed at highlighting and raising the profile of the Australian deserts; with particular focus on Indigenous land management and ranger teams and their work.  The design of the book will be similar to The Pew Charitable Trusts The Modern Outback, though the focus will be much more narrative – telling the story of rangers and ranger teams, as opposed to the presenting of information and reports.

We require stories to be written about each of the ranger teams and their activities; as well as their connection, through funding and support to the 10DP. There is a strong expectation that the stories will be good reading, humane, and point to the need for greater investment in and support of, desert peoples.

See the brief below or email shelleydoyle@dss.org.au for more information.
