What are Ozlandish Writings?

From July 2010 to December 2014 we ran OZLAND PICTURE STORIES as described below. Sadly though the number of writers reduced over the years and we decided to call it a day. We leave these as a record of the good times we had.

Are "You" ready to challenge your writing skills? Then participate in our OZLAND Picture Stories writing series at The Ozland Art Gallery.

Each month a new picture will be picked, from our OZLAND Artist of the Month collection, with different themes. Your goal is to write a 500-1000 word... poem... essay... or story about the picture picked. This is a chance for you to challenge your writing skills each month. Story can be written in ANY genre... sci fi... romance... ghost... fantasy... fiction... non-fiction... biography... mystery... historical... whatever your writing genre... feel free to experiment. Send your writing inworld to Sven Pertelson as a notecard to have it included on the web site. We meet at the The Ozland Art Gallery each Wednesday at Noon and 6pm SLT to read the latest submissions on voice. More Information

Wintry White by Llola Lane

(inspired by the Enkaustik Artwork, "eiszeit" by Marie Binder)

Wintry white all crisp and clean
These are the visions of magical dreams

Dreams that take us far away
To a place where we can stay

Away from the busy world we know
Where mountains rise and the land has snow

Where peace and quiet go hand in hand
and majestic views are oh so grand

Is there really such a place?
Or are we stuck living in the rat race?

It's nice to stop and dream
If only for a moment it may seem

For dreams are what make the world go round
and keep us solid to the ground.

So let us not leave dreams for night
and always have time for Wintry white.
