#WonderFold is a monthly feature that includes a prompt-based writing challenge on the first Monday of every odd month, followed by the publication of a winning response the first Monday of 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 year closes and another begins. In this cold world, one can see warmth in every exhale. Looking up, the stark reminder of travel crosses the winter sky. Recall all of the footfalls and distance, the faces and events, those who have come and those who have gone. I wonder where you’ve been or where you’re going…
RESPONSE: Combining the sensory information in the scene/photo above with your own experience/imagination, write a short poem or paragraph in response. Sarah Gibson (Folded Word Features Editor) will select one response to be highlighted on the blog next month. Enter your poem/paragraph in the form below no later than 21:00 Eastern on January 28, 2018. The winning response will be announced on February 5, 2018, and its author sent $5 via PayPal. Winning authors residing in countries for which PayPal accounts are unavailable may select a chapbook from Folded Word’s in-stock titles as a prize.
