#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: A meandering stream through the prairie becomes another smudge of color on the landscape. Grasshoppers lift and flit forward only to lift and flit again as the crunch of footfall reaches them. A light wind suggests the passing of time as do the lost blooms of the coneflower. Reeds bend and are brightened by the sun. Our days are filled with foreground and background. Allow this prompt to conjure a memory and respond…
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 November 9, 2017. The winning response will be announced on November 15, 2017, and its author sent a $5 PayPal gift card.
