Hosted by Andrew Stuck, the Write About Walking showcase event introduces the shortlisted authors of the walk · listen · create / Sound Walk September writing competition, and includes readings of their poetry and prose.

Run by the Museum of Walking and Sampson Low Publishers the walk · listen · create writing competition will attract scores of entires. The competition required writers to compose poems or prose of 250 words and under, inspired by the theme of “walking and listening”.

The shortlisted pieces are published in WALKING an illustrated chapbook anthology and issued as an audio book, sale proceeds of which go to support future walk · listen · create writing competitions. Copies of the book (when published) can be purchased.

The winners and runners-up in each of the poetry and prose categories will be announced at the event – with the accolade of on-line Poet & Prose Writer-in-Residence for 2022 walk · listen · create and for Sound Walk September 2022 going to the winners in each category.

We are grateful to the Museum of Walking for providing financial support towards the prizes and the showcase.

Get behind the microphone to discover how one makes compelling audio recordings that engage both armchair listeners and those of us out and about on foot. We are delighted to have brought together four creatives who have travelled to remote places, revealed hidden histories, and captured the soundscapes and voices of past and present, to enable us to sit back in comfort or stride forward to listen to what is unseen.
