Writing for Children – submit to Lamplands

Lamplands is about places on maps. The alley behind the house. Amber-lit night-time streets. Birmingham. That dell between this village and the next. The attic. Stone circles, duns, shell mounds. Places an OS map calls “rems of”. That bend in the river where you can find trout this big. The walk to school. The huge Sainsbury’s in Whitechapel. The Ross ice shelf. Arizona. Grosmont wood.lamplandsknightnu

Lamplands is to be a collection of short stories for children, released monthly in digital format.
