Edition 20: Writers on Walking

Photo by Shehani Fernando

We take four authors for a walk through Hackney. Sean Borodale's poem Notes for an Atlas guides us through, we rise early to join Iain Sinclair for his morning perambulation to the A12, Lemn Sissay takes us from his local shop Palm 2 (where all walks begin) to hear of his tale of going barefoot for a year, and Stewart Home walks us from Kingsland Basin to where he used to live in the 80s near Victoria Park, finding it now just a pile of rubble.

    Lovely stuff - another very distinctive take on Hackney, a place I visit but don't live in. Walking is such a London experience, and the sound design evoked the experience beautifully. (My favourite sound was that scrunchy sound of walking on snow.)

    While listening to this I had so many flashback of walking adventures from my past. I especially love the "two types of people in the world" line towards the end!

    So inspired by the sounds of walking, I am leaving my warm indoors for an afternoon walk...

    Hey there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted
    to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be
    greatly appreciated!

    My blog; google
