Participate in Shorelines, a collaborative project on writing and reciting, focussed on the dividing line between land and water..

How does it work?

You can participate as a writer, by writing and submitting a text, poetry or prose, of under 250 words.

You can also participate by reciting a submitted text and recording your submission, either as audio, or video.

Both writers and reciters can submit images connected to their work.

Submit poems or prose and invite a friend to read your work aloud, before the end of September 2021, for a chance to win prizes in our Shorelines 21 Prize winning draw.

Only submissions that have a recording associated with them are eligible. Prizes include 2x Silver memberships (each worth €50), 3x cash prizes of €10, and 12x Walking chapbook anthologies (each worth €5).

Are there limitations?


  • Your submitted text has to be 250 words or less.
  • You can only submit work that you have the right to distribute. So, you can not submit copyrighted texts or images. Unless you hold the rights.
  • By participating, you make your submitted work available under a Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial license. This basically means others can use your work, on the condition they credit you, and that they do not use your work commercially.
  • We might remove submissions we think are inappropriate.
