Check out this amazing world-building project by Brisbane publishers Tiny Owl Workshop. Writers and artists have provided a provided a map of the Lane, a prologue that explains something of the geopolitical reality of the city in which the Lane is located, and some images and ideas to spark your creativity. You are invited to bid for a shop in the Lane, by writing a flash fiction piece (by 31st July) or a short story (by 31st August) that brings your shop and its denizens to life. The publishers will select the best stories for a book, and may also produce them in charming and startling alternative formats.
I love good fantasy, and the Lane has really fired my imagination. Hope it fires yours too.
