Tamara Griffiths

Mountain Writer

After completing a master’s degree in Sustainable Mountain Development at University of Highlands and Islands Scotland, Griffiths became a ‘mountain writer’ writing for The Huffington Post and smaller publications, reporting on mountain issues with a focus on mountain foods.

In Italy she lectures in Culture and History of Food in Italy and Post-productivism in Rural Environments, and works as translator for Monti Sibillini National Park. Her first non-fiction book, “Walking in the Sibillini, A Celebration of a Distinctive Mountain Culture” was published 2014, available in Italian and English. With a background as a scriptwriter, having had her plays produced professionally in London, Berlin, Los Angeles, and Toronto, as well as five commissioned film scripts, Griffiths is now concentrating on mountain writing within an environmental anthropological perspective.
