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

"The Quilt Is" by Llola Lane

"The Quilt Is" by Llola Lane

The quilt is designed...
with paper and pen
it tells a story
from beginning to end!

The quilt fabric is chosen...
fine weaves to sew
with careful concideration
to color and flow.

The quilt pieces are cut...
On the table they lay
like a puzzle they form
waiting to be joined another day.

The quilt pieces are sewn together...
Sewn with love and care
every triangle...
every square!

The quilt batting is added...
All fluffy and white
it will add warmth
far into the night!

The quilt is backed with fabric...
No wrinkles, it's taped to a mat
safety pins will hold it together
til the quilting makes it flat.

The quilt is quilted...
Tiny stitches hold it tight
they add a pattern
to make the quilt just right.

The quilt is binded...
So the edges don't fray
it will last for years
through sleep and play.

The quilt is given...
a masterpiece to pleasure
for the loved one who gets it
will cherish and treasure!
