Stephen Scourfield, author, journalist, travel editor, and photographer, has travelled extensively throughout the world.
His journeys in Australia, including more than a million kilometres on roads and tracks around Western Australia, have given him a deep understanding of the continent’s human and geographic landscape. The relationship of humans to landscape has become a central theme of his writing.
His first novel, Other Country, was the fiction winner in the WA Premier’s Book Award 2007, shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and longlisted for the 2009 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.
Stephen Scourfield is a recipient of a United Nations Media Award and has twice been named Australia’s Best Travel Writer, in 2011 and 2009.
