Natural landmarks are an important part of our world heritage. Beyond tourist attractions and wall calendars, they are proof of planet earth’s evolving and ever changing existence. They also influence the stories we tell. Be it twisted tree, a snaking river, or rock formations worn by the elements.

Compose a piece of landscape prose or prose poetry. It can deal with your natural surrounds, urban environments or the relationship between the two. It’s not necessary to overly beautify the landscape, but, like a painter, see if you can breathe 21st century life and metaphor into the world as we know it.
