Writing Inspired by Art: enter your prose or poetry in OWC’s “Story Starters” competition


Click the following link to check out my photo chosen by the Ontario Writers’ Conference for this month’s “Story Starters” competition. What story does it tell?


February Story Starter


You have till February 28 to submit your photo-inspired creative writing. Enter as many stories or poems as you like (each 100 words maximum).

The top 10 entries for each month will be sent to the OWC’s final-round judge, who will select a top 3. The top 3 entries for each piece of art will be displayed at the 2014 Ontario Writers’ Conference (May 2nd & 3rd in Ajax, Ontario) for final ballot-voting by attendees. The winners will be announced at the conference and each will receive a prize (TBA).

I’m pleased to be following talented writer, editor, and artist Ingrid Ruthig, whose Confluence was the competition’s January inspiration.

Now, view my Story Starter for February and get creative. I hope to see your story or poem on the contest entries page!
