Entrants were invited to submit poems or stories; they could be fictional, factual or memoir, and limited to a maximum of just 250 words.

WALKING (2023) includes the winning poems and stories from Ricky Abbott, Shani Cadwallender, Kevin Cheeseman, Lorraine Collins, Chris Cuninghame, Amelia Hodsdon, Rosaleen Lynch, Jan Martin, Isabella Mead, Eilín de Paor, and Richard Westcott.

The winning poems were judged by Ralph Hoyte (poet, soundwalks producer) and Tony Horitz.

The winning stories were judged by Suzanne Greene (author) and Cheryl Markosky.

Chris Bestwick edited the anthology, and Alban Low illustrated it. The anthology is published by Sampson Low Publishers.
