Pin a Tale

Ireland’s Docs Pin a Tale

Pin-a-Tale was an online crowd-sourcing initiative that sought to connect experiences of writing and place, and pin them to a searchable map. People were asked to choose a literary work from any period and in any form that relates to a specific location in the British and Irish Isles and to tell how the author captured the spirit of the place. The results can be explored on the website of the project. Pin-a-Tale has been added to the digital collections of British Library for re-use by researchers (under Creative Commons Dedication).
