Writing Maps

It’s the third Saturday of the month and that means it’s time for the Writing Maps monthly competition.

It’s free to enter and there are two winners each month. You’d be daft not to, really.




If you don’t already know, Writing Maps are small, fold out sets of writing prompts, inspirational quotes and exercises, made to fit in your pocket and carry with you.

Created by Shaun Levin and illustrated by many different artists, they’re really beautiful and will be a pleasure to refer back to time and time again.

Being a lover of maps, stories and writing I couldn’t wait to try them out myself.




I have my most successful bursts of writing when out and about, people watching in cafes, the SouthBank Centre or (my all time happy place) the Barbican, so I chose Writing People; “a writing map for crowded places”.

When it comes to fiction, the bit I struggle with most is dialogue, and creating varying tones of voice (everyone ends up being a bit of a surly know-it-all. Can’t think where I get that from…), so of course I had to opt for The Voice and Point of View Map as well.

You can also buy notebooks, posters, postcards and stickers in the shop.



I love stickers


Writing Maps are only £4.50 each, or less if you opt for box set.

You can keep up with their latest on Twitter, including news of their brand new fold out magazine, Writing Journal (launching in September)!
