Tales of the Riverbank.

We want to collect memories and stories of the River Trent and River Dove, the landscape and its people, but we need your help.

We want to hear your stories, experiences and reminiscences! This is your chance to have a go at some creative writing, and let us know about your lived experiences of the landscape. This could take any form - poetry, a short story, an interview, written or filmed pieces, spoken word, pictures, "stream of consciousness", haikus, photos... the more creative the better!
