Submissions will close at the end of July 2018 and reopen in September when we would love to read your stories and poems about the countryside.
We are seeking work that has a rural element – of woodland, field, river, pond, lake or beach, maybe a rocky crag or a chalk stream, or a patch of green grass or a copse of nettles and brambles. The work doesn’t need to be about conservation or environmental issues – that is up to you.
More details of deadlines and word counts are on the Anthology page. We hope that you will consider submitting your work to us, and we will read it carefully and kindly.
Why are we doing this?
We are writers who love the countryside, and we want to stop the kind of reckless development that will destroy our gorgeous green land; we want to conserve it for future generations. Of course we need houses but we also need to protect wildlife and retain these pockets of peacefulness where we can walk our dogs or jog or cycle or build dens, play or paint, or simply wander and think.
Our plan is to make a stir!
