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

"Which one to choose" by Llola Lane

"Which one to choose" by Llola Lane

So many pictures... Which one to choose
With a variety of choices, I can not loose.

I wrote last month about the lady in the hat
Maybe this week I'll write about the girls with the cat

Or maybe I'll write about a ride on the boat
or maybe sargent 98 wearing his fine coat.

Tea at the terazzo works is interesting too
and maybe the tea made a sleeper out of Lou.

Babysitting with sisters is a very nice one
And the bicycle built for two looks like a lot of fun.

Who will be my mother is a picture of dolls
But the one at the ironmonger shows boxes on the walls.

The cabbies at the station were a sign of the time
and sister with her shopping shows how she spent her dime.

The switchgear room shows technology at its best
as the Works van truck makes it way to the west.

The Red Cross Cadets show nothing is really broken
And I wonder at the show ground station... do they use a token?

Sunday by the Thames shows four girls and one boy
Whilst the mother and my sisters doesn't show much joy.

Sisters home from school sit still as can be
and a little one says her prayers upon bended knee.

Picking a picture for my story is hard to do
So I'll wait til next week... causes I don't have a clue.
