Can you write a story about Suffolk?

Do you have memories of the old days? Or have you recently moved here? Could you write a fictional account of life, set in this eastern county of England? Village life, seaside life, life in the town, life on the farm – in Suffolk we have many different settings that could inspire you to write a prize-winning story.
