To an inquisitive writer a humble postcode can be strangely intriguing. PA60 7XW is where Orwell wrote 1984. Father Christmas can be reached at XM4 5HQ. Every postcode is a secret key that unlocks… well, who knows?

To answer that question, we paired 26 of our members with 26 postcodes. We challenged each writer to visit the place denoted by their postcode – in the real world or in their imaginations – and to use the experience as inspiration for a sestude, exactly 62 words of prose or poetry.

This book holds the results of their creative excursions. It’s a beautiful reminder that a writer can find inspiration anywhere. Just pick a postcode and go.
