    10th Anniversary Publication

    Call for Submissions

    CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

    For LWA’s 10th anniversary in 2022 we’re producing our first ever book and would love you to be part of it!

    We’re looking for submissions relating to the landwork movement and LWA’s work. Through a mix of contributions we are hoping to capture the breadth and diversity of the movement and stories from people who work the land.

    We want to encourage your creativity and leave the brief open, but to get your creativity flowing here are some questions you might want to reflect on:

    How did you get started in landwork?

    What has been a key moment or defining moment in your land working journey?

    What got you involved with the LWA?

    What was your first experience of the LWA?

    Do you have a story to tell us about the LWA and your involvement?

    What would you tell a new entrant landworker just starting out, or a younger self?

    What is your favourite time of year on the land and why?

    Reflect on something that has changed in the movement over the last 10 years?

    What was your first experience of the LWA?

    Where do you think the LWA will be in 10 years time?

    Your submission could take any form from letters to poems, song lyrics, short essays, personal accounts, sketches, illustrations and photographs. As a guideline we’re looking for texts that are 500 words or under.

    DEADLINE AND SELECTION PROCESS

    The deadline for submissions is 23 January 2022 after which we will review the contributions and make a selection based on the mix of different content, locations represented, types of landwork and backgrounds.

    While we are unable to pay for selected contributions we will ensure that you are credited and that you receive LWA’s 2023 calendar.

    We hope that you’ll take some time over the Winter to put pen to paper and to encourage friends and colleagues to submit a contribution.

    If you have any questions please contact Sally, who is coordinating the project:
