This week’s Word of the Week aka WOtW is thrumble which means ‘Make one’s way by pushing or jostling; push, jostle’ (The New Shorter Oxford English Dictionary).  You now have one week to produce a creative thrumble.


We’re looking for images that reflect the meaning of thrumble – be as tangential and inventive as you like.  Post your image to:

EITHER:  The Urban Flash group on Flickr and use the tag WOTW2

OR:  Instagram using the hashtag #tpro_ldn_wotw2.


Write a piece of fiction, non-fiction or poetry (maximum 250 words) that includes the word thrumble. Paste the story into the body of an email and send to wotw@tprol.co.uk.  If you’re looking for a real challenge, submit a story using just 133 characters via Twitter using the  hashtag #pr17w2.

The WOtW challenge is the warm-up for our forthcoming Urban Flash competition where words and images will collide to create a new collaborative, creative universe.  Each week, we’ll be finding a word and inviting participants to submit their interpretation of that word either photographically or textually. We’ll be featuring our favourites on the TPRoL website and we’re holding a monthly prize draw.  January’s winners will receive a signed copy of Geoff Nicholson’s The London Complaint: A Celebration of the Capital’s Maladies.
