New Prompt Posted & Entries for April Mini Writing Competition Now Invited

Congratulations to Margi Pearson whose entry in last month’s mini competition attracted the most votes.  As winner she has set this month’s competition, which follows below;

I’ve never written a prompt before so hope this is ok.  🙂  

An odd looking man walks up to you in the park. He asks if he can show you something. You hesitate but decide to humor him. Whatever  “it” is is contained in the palm of his hand. He opens his hand and you are shocked.

Write what happens next: 500 words or less

Poetry about object, emotions, response, etc. is acceptable too

Thank you to Margi for her participation and, even if you do not wish to submit a piece to the website yourself, please check back in after the 24th to vote for your favourite entry.

  1. Traffickers by Jill

    He’s cold, he shakes, he needs my top.
    Slumps on the grass, I want the cops.
    I love the park, the trees, the sky,
    He’s gasping for breath, he’ll maybe die
    I shout for help, scream into my phone
    What torturer did this? One of his own?
    I run for pleasure My body is strong
    He came to my country. He can’t belong
    He is somebody’s brother, a good man’s son
    Why did he pick me? Something’s begun.

    They kept him prisoner. They burned his hand
    He can’t speak my language but I understand
