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

A Sad Cat Tale - by lillian Morpork

Sneaky-paw and Singing-purr,
She loved him and he loved her.
They had four kits, three girls, one boy,
Who filled their lives with love and joy.
They lived in peaceful harmony,
They’d chase a mouse or climb a tree.

They’d roll and fight, but just for fun,
Then chase each other at a run.
Alas one day, the girls they ran
Right out in front of a moving van.
Then Paw and Purr sat down and cried
For Tabby, Gracie and Messy died.

Poor Paw and Purr, their hearts are sad
At the loss of the darling girls they’d had.
Now all their love and care they give
To the handsome boy who still does live.
He’s growing brave, and wise and strong,
And we hope that all his lives are long.
