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

Just a few words for one painting - by Lloubras Eyre

N'entends tu pas la plainte de ces yeux
Juste un regard, une souffrance qui se tait
Un visage impassible qui comtemple la vie
Comtempler n'est pas forcément subjuguer
On ne décrit pas une peinture, on l'a vit!**
Les mots sont inutiles quand le frisson t'envahit

Do not you hear the suffering in those eyes?
A straight face contemplating life
To contemplate is not necessarily to subjugate,
We do not describe a painting, we live it!**
Words are useless when the chills invade you!
**eyes, skin and heart blanch!**
Is this cold or fear of this gloomy evening
No just the emotion of a lost face in the spring!**
