Meet the authors who are writing about walking and the landscapes through which we walk, at walk · listen · create’s Walking Writers Salons of which this is the first. We are delighted to have Martyn Howe join us as he walks around England on the newly created England Coast Path national trail. He is no stranger to walking, and no stranger to writing, so look forward to an engaging hour in his company.

Martyn Howe talks with Andrew Stuck about his 40-year journey to walk all the National Trails in England, Scotland, and Wales and the poetry, art, and people he met along the way. His book – Tales from the Big Trails – was published by Vertebrate Publishing in September with a chapter on each trail, notably the South West Coast Path, Pennine Way, Cotswold Way, and 16 others.

He is currently walking the England Coast Path and is always on the lookout for art installations, sculptures and poetry that provide deeper insights into the landscape and the culture.

Walking Writers Salons are hour-long events in which you will get to meet a Walking Writer and learn from them how they weave writing and walking, and how they interpret their surroundings. Each Salon will include a discussion with the author, inviting questions from the audience, and will include a multiple choice quiz in which winners will receive prizes including copies of WALKING, our own limited edition illustrated chapbook anthology of poems and prose on the theme of Walking and Listening.
