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

"Madelin and her Mandolin" by Llola Lane

"Madelin and her Mandolin" by Llola Lane

Madelin loved her mandolin
she played it all day long.
From early morning til late at night
she played her lovely song.

Wether it be a mandolin concerto
or a lively country tune,
Madelin played to her hearts content
from January to June.

Once July came rolling in
she'd play her music to the crowd
and everyone would sit in awe and wonder
til she was done and then they wow'd.

The people loved her music
and she would play it all
but bluegrass tunes where her favorite
cause everyone would have a ball.

In December she took a break
for Christmas time was near
but on Christmas day she'd play at church
for a baby boy, oh so dear.

Yes, Madelin loved her mandolin
she played it til she died
but the mandolin lives on with her son
who plays it far and wide.
