#WonderFold is a monthly feature that includes a prompt-based writing challenge that emphasizes attention to sensory detail and the little things in life.
INVITATION: All art grows out of paying attention: in sight, sound, scent, taste & touch. You are invited to craft a written response (poetry or prose, 50 words or less) to the images and scene below.
SCENE: A walk through the neighborhood. The smell of BBQ is in the air. The trees are blooming. The soundtrack of the walk includes chirping birds and the laughter of children in the distance; a plane passes overhead. Shoes grow damp as last night’s rainstorm rests in the grass. Everything is bright with color.
RESPONSE: Combining the sensory information in the scene/photos above with your own experience/imagination, write a short poem or paragraph in response. This month, consider responding to the prompt by including any form of rhyme. JS Graustein (Editor in Chief) will select one response to be highlighted on the blog and its author will receive a free chapbook (choice from stock on-hand). Enter your poem/paragraph in the form below no later than 21:00 Eastern on 25 August 2016. The winning response will be announced/posted 29 August 2016, and its author sent a list of chapbooks to choose from.
