We are celebrating London Rivers Week in July however, you can get involved at any time in our Shorelines submissions and sharpen your writing skills by joining this online workshop with El Rhodes, our creative writing champion.

The aim of this workshop is to help you become a better nature writer. Over the course of 120 minutes we’ll use two complementary forms – haiku and flash fiction – and draw inspiration from the shoreline (sea, lake, pond, river or stream) and other parts of the natural world. We will look at how observation can inspire and hone fictional techniques; the benefits of movement to creative thinking and practice; as well as how to approach editing and preparing your work for submission or publication including ‘reading aloud’ and recording.

Led by prolifically published flash author E.E. Rhodes and Andrew Stuck, founder of the Museum of Walking and co-producer of Sound Walk September.

All works submitted as a read aloud piece to the walk · listen · create Shorelines project automatically get entered into a Sound Walk September prize draw. During the workshop you will gain practice in submitting to the Shorelines project.

We are offering a number of early bird discounted tickets, and for those unable to genuinely afford the ticket price we have two subsidised tickets available, and two free places (Please get in touch if you qualify).

  • Have your walk · listen · create registration details handy for Shorelines submissions
  • Look through and listen to past entries to Shorelines
