Writing & Walking

What is the relationship between walking and writing?  In recent months, Writing the Map has been experimenting with approaches to walking which free the subconscious, and connect our internal journeys to the landscape, with the aim of  inspiring our writing.

I will be sharing the protocols and inviting walkers to test them out for themselves at a Walkshop in BRISTOL –  Friday, September 15th (approx 10-2pm)

The Walkshop is free. We will not be walking for four hours.  The morning will be a mixture of sharing project findings, walking activities, and exploring ways to capture our walks in writing to create a series of narrative maps –  whether through short stories, flash or creative non-fiction.

Participants will be supported to develop their work, to contribute to an interactive project blog: https://writethemap.wordpress.com/ and take part in a Spoken Word Events in October.

Places are limited, bookings only.

If you would like more information about the project, or would like to participate in the Walkshop, please contact Christina atcreatelearnconnect@gmail.com. Mobile: 07738 763 161. @ChrisSand12 #writingthemap  Facebook: writingthemap. Instagram: writingthemapcs

Writing The Map is funded by The Arts Council.
