The Journal of the International Centre for Landscape and Language at Edith Cowan University

Volume 4 Issue 1

The upcoming issue of Landscapes 'Peripatetica' is soliciting responses to the theme of walking and bipedal movement in wild, suburban or urban areas.

American Transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau in his essay ‘Walking’ says ‘I have met with but one or two persons in the course of my life who understood the art of Walking, that is, of taking walks--who had a genius, so to speak, for SAUNTERING’. Rebecca Solnit more recently in Wanderlust echoes Thoreau when she describes ‘walking is a subversive detour, the scenic route through a half-abandoned landscape of ideas and experiences’.

Landscapes is currently accepting submissions of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, photography, visual and sound art for this unique 2010 issue. We welcome all submissions that attempt to explore the theme of walking in literal or metaphoric ways, regionally in Southwest Australia or internationally.

Academic articles of 8000 words or less will be submitted to a peer-review process before publication.

Please see for submission guidelines and for previous issues

Closing Date 30 June 2010

General Editors Glen Phillips and Andrew Taylor ISSN 1448-0778


I went enquiring at their Landscapes site and with some difficulty found the following which may be useful to you.
