#WonderFold is a monthly feature that includes a prompt-based writing challenge one month, followed by the publication of a winning response the next month.
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 image and scene below:
SCENE: Only a few flowers in the garden remain. While patiently waiting for this photo, a squirrel is startled away from the raspberries. This in turn causes a flock of sparrows at the feeder to jolt and tuck into a nearby bush. A breeze bends the stem. A phone in the house next door rings but there is no answer. On the whole, color is beginning to fade as the camera lens opens and shuts.
RESPONSE: Combining the sensory information in the scene/photos above with your own experience/imagination, write a short poem or paragraph in response. 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
24 November 2016 27 November 2016. The winning response will be announced/posted 28 November 2016 29 November 2016, and its author sent a list of chapbooks to choose from.
