Event Details

walk · listen · create (WLC) is the home of walking artists and artist walkers, as well as Sound Walk September, the Sound Walk September Awards, the Marŝarto Awards, and Placecloud.

They invite you to write a (flash) story or poem of 250 words or under about Walking Together.

The competition theme Walking Together has been chosen by our competition theme by our 2023/4 writers-in-residence, Shani Cadwallender (poetry) and Amelia Hodsdon (prose).

You can choose how you wish to interpret the theme in poetry or short prose. Your work must be fiction and must not exceed 250 words (excluding the title).

The organizer will publish the best poetry and prose submissions in an illustrated chapbook anthology, as well as an audio locative podcast. Shortlisted pieces will also be showcased during Sound Walk September 2024, including a public online event where shortlisted authors and poets can read their work.

We are keen to encourage quality, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
