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

Sonya - by Crap Mariner

Sonya was good, her family said, but she wanted to be the absolute best.

"For the best music," said The Devil, "you must string your violin with heartstrings. They resonate with unmatched beauty."

So, at her concerts, playing her best, she managed to capture heart after heart, luring the men to her home to harvest the strings she needed.

Still, she didn't sound like the best of all.

The Devil laughed. "They have to be from people you love the most."

Her mother.
Her father.
Her sister.

The Devil laughed at the carnage, rosined Sonya's bow, and played.
