This anthology is published to coincide with Sound Walk September 2021. The pandemic has opened our eyes to what is within walking distance of our homes. Restricted both in time and distance, each of us have had to find ways to endure lockdowns, and for many of us the daily walk has been a saviour. However, we were not wanting to restrict writers when writing about walking, it could be fiction, factual or memoir, and not be limited to their lockdown walk, our only wish was that they consider what they might have listened to while walking, in just 250 words (or fewer).

WALKING includes the winning poems and stories from Jane V. Adams, Sophie Austin, Anne Bailie, Murdo Eason, Angela Findlay, Megan Hicks, Lydia Kennaway, Maggie McShane, Kate Meyer-Currey, Nathan Munday, Liz Nicholas, E. E. Rhodes, J Riggall, P. W. Roden and Claudia Zeiske

The winning poems were judged by Dr Kerri Andrews (writer and academic, working on women’s literature and the history of walking) and Geert Vermeire (curator, poet and an interdisciplinary artist, and producer of Made of Walking, and co-founder of walk · listen · create). The winning stories were judged by N. G. Bristow (screen writer, director and installation artist running the MA in Directing Fiction at Goldsmiths, University of London) and Nick Hallissey (Deputy Editor of Country Walking Magazine). The anthology is edited by Rebekah Lattin-Rawstrone and illustrated by Alban Low.
