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

Empty Homes - a Triolet Poem in two stanzas - by Lillian Morpork

Sleepless darkness, empty, still,
Lonely, silent, waiting, sad;
Where are those who used to fill
That sleepless darkness, empty, still,
With tales of hunts and exciting kill?
No more the Sinagua, doeskin clad,
Just sleepless darkness, empty, sad.

Nevermore the children's laughter?
No more cheerful infant's prattle?
No more loving, talking after?
Nevermore the children's laughter.
Have they all gone to the great hereafter?
Do the braves wage heavenly battle?
Nevermore the children's laughter,
No more cheerful infant's prattle!
