Neighbourhoods are hives of stories. Suburbs, boroughs, precincts, even a single street are natural framing devices for novels, short stories and character sketches. The creative writing prompts and story ideas on the Write Up Your Street Writing Map will guide you through neighbourhoods past, present and fictional, and suggest ways to develop stories out of the dramas happening right outside your front door.
The Writing Map is illustrated by Me & Oli with writing prompts by Shaun Levin.
