Writers Wanted

Canal Activities For Kids - eBook

I am currently creating an eBook called ‘Canal Activities For Kids’. It is a collection of articles contributed by narrowboaters who live or work on the waterways.

Topics covered include; narrowboating, a boat themed recipe, arts and crafts, days out, waterways museums, cycling with kids, fishing with kids, history, foraging, reading waterways stories, wildlife walks and camping. The book is packed full of ideas for low cost family fun.

I am actively seeking writers with a waterways connection who would like to contribute to the book.

Please contact me by email to indicate which topic you are interested in writing about, or if you have a suggestion for an activity not listed above. Articles can be between 400 and 600 words with one or two pictures. Your article should include details of any equipment required, where to obtain that equipment and what ages the activity is suitable for. You may also recommend suitable books for further reading. (Topics already allocated to writers are: narrowboating, cycling, fishing and foraging.)

As this is a small scale project there is unfortunately no budget for the book. However, I can include a short biography of you and/or your business and a link to your blog or business website. You will also receive a complimentary copy of the eBook, upon publication.
