It’s time for another ekphrastic writing contest!
For Photogene 5 we’ve chosen Margarita Gokun Silver’s “Inner Child.” (Click image for a larger view.)
Margarita Gokun Silver is an artist and a writer. Her preferred medium of expression is oil on canvas — she loves the smell, the texture, and the vibrancy of colors of oil. In writing she leans towards women’s fiction and creative non-fiction. Her blog is very, very young but you can learn more about her art and her writing at www.StoriesAndColors.wordpress.com.
Now for the contest rules:
- Write no more than 500 words of poetry, fiction, or nonfiction that have been inspired by this wonderful piece of art/photography. No need to mention it or say anything directly about it. Instead, let it rouse, ignite, awaken, electrify, spark, trigger, prompt, inspire, cause, and effect your writing
- Submit your wonderful piece of writing here by Thursday, January 31.
- In the box for the cover letter, include a brief bio (no more than 60 words) and a link to your website if you’d like.
We will select one winner, who will be posted on the site and drink to their success from our prize:
