Launching our new audio anthology

“The destiny of every walking man is to immerse himself in the panorama surrounding him, to the point of becoming one with it and, ultimately, to vanish”.

Federico Castigliano

Join us for a bracing Autumn walk with a difference, as we launch a new audio anthology! MK Lit Fest have collaborated with Walk Listen Create and The Parks Trust to curate an audio collection of new writing that you can listen to through the Echoes.xyz app as a ‘soundwalk’ . Each piece in the anthology has linked to a specific location in Great Linford Manor Park, Stonepit Field or Stanton Low in Milton Keynes. 

So…. why not check the weather forecast, dress appropriately, maybe bring a thermos flask or a lunchbox of snacks, and put your walking shoes on as we explore these locations and listen to the writers’ words. We’re inviting the local authors to join us to, so you may even have the special treat of live, in-person and in situ performances. Book a free space and we’ll email joining instructions on the day!


Milton Keynes – Walking Home: the Soundwalk

The SoundWalk that we have collaboratively curated is available to listen to from Saturday 24 September in the Echoes.xyz app (available for Apple and Android devices). The anthology will remain available after the in-person walk, and we’re already looking to work with Walk Listen Create to produce further audio-anthologies of geo-located new writing.
