My short piece Garth Hill has recently been shortlisted in the WRITE ABOUT WALKING & LISTENING writing competition hosted by walk · listen · create ‘Sound Walk September’. This competition was launched in July and submitters were asked to write poetry or prose in fewer than 250 words.
Garth Hill is a walking piece which muses on the loss of a relative and contemplates the importance of sound and landscape when it comes to forming memory. The shortlisted pieces will be 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 a Showcase event, at which all the shortlisted authors have been invited to read their work – 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.
