LOTR Topophilia Writing Contest

Enter by Dec. 24 to win €60, €25, or €15 and have your story performed at #touristwalkDublin


There’s no entry fee. Just send 400-500 words (fiction or nonfiction) focused on love for a place — any place in the world — to topophilia13@gmail.com. The winners will be chosen by our panel of judges: Irish writer Ruth Gilligan, Liberties Press publisher Seán O’Keeffe, the Tourist Walk team, and the Love on the Road 2013 team.

The winning stories will be published online and performed at the MART gallery in Dublin’s Rathmines neighborhood on the evening of 3 January, 2014 as part of #touristwalkDublin, an event organized by Tourist Walk, a cross-discipline art project that seeks to explore and celebrate the unique character of location through live music.

The three winners can attend #touristwalkDublin and do live readings of their winning submissions, email audio recordings of their submissions to be played at #touristwalkDublin, or ask one of us to read their submissions for them at the big event.

The authors of the winning stories will get: First Prize: €60 and a signed Tourist Walk poster; Second Prize: €25 and a copy of the just-released anthology of stories about love and travel, Love on the Road 2013; Third Prize: €15.
