1000 Word Challenge

Nobody can say for sure who coined the phrase ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ but we do know it’s been around since the early 1900s. It’s clear why the saying has stood the test of time. One glance at a picture and you can instantly imagine the story behind it. The story might be personal, like a couple in love relaxing in a gondola in Venice.  For me, that image brings back memories of my honeymoon and the amazing adventure my husband and I shared.  Or, it could trigger strong emotions of love, hate, loneliness, or contentment.

As authors we work hard to show our readers the worlds we conjure in our minds; the sometimes loving, sometimes quirky, sometimes sadistic characters -- and the stories behind them.  We hope our words jump from the page and prompt an emotional response similar to a vivid picture.

That’s what we had in mind when we developed this writing prompt.  If you're an author and you want to participate here's your chance.  Whether your a seasoned writer, or you're just starting out, give it a try.  Because, while a picture might be worth a thousand words… those words can change depending on the story teller.

Stories will be screened for content and quality.  Top stories will be published in the magazine based on the image.  Submitting a story does not guarantee inclusion in the magazine.
