26 Steps

39stepsOctober 2015 marked the 100th anniversary of the publication of John Buchan’s novel ‘The 39 Steps’. This novel is a starting off point for a new 26 Characters project, about walking in the landscape, that will run in Spring 2016.

The #26Steps project, curated by Sandy Wilkie & Michelle Nicol who brought you #26UnderANorthernSky, will identify 26 walks around the UK that go from place names A to B, B to C etc. We will be seeking writers who will be happy to undertake their allocated walk, take one photograph, and write a short piece about the effect of the landscape on their experience. We aim to produce a project website and some limited edition route postcards.

The #26Steps project will launch with a call for writers in early January 2016. In the meantime, please contact Sandy on lizardvanilla@gmail.com if you have any questions or suggested routes.
