To coincide with the global Sound Walk Sunday / September festival we devised a flash writing competition to celebrate storytelling about places, the winning stories are included in this our latest 16pp chapbook anthology Flash #MyLandmarks.
Flash #MyLandmarks includes the winning stories from Andrew Anderson, Ruth Bradshaw, Paul Chown, Mel Davies, Carrie Dunne, Alison Fure, Pennie Hedge, Laurence Sullivan and Amanda Tuke.
The competition judged by N G Bristow (screen writer, director and visual artist running the MA in Directing Fiction at Goldsmiths University of London), Rebekah Lattin-Rawstrone (author, editor and tutor on the Novel Studio at City, University of London) and Andrew Stuck (Founding Director of the Museum of Walking). The artwork is by Alban Low – who is also the co-publisher (with the Museum of Walking)!
To chime with the aims of Sound Walk September, we hired an award-winning actor, Mariah Gale to voice the stories, and for a limited time made them available on the Placecloud app, such that they could be listened to either at home or geo-located on the locations of the places the stories described.
