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

Many Shades of Purple by Lillian Morpork

Many Shades of Purple by Lillian Morpork

A spread of purple heather across a Scottish brae,
Violets peeping shyly along a forest way;
Beds of healing lavender, with foxgloves blooming near,
Delphinius and fusia, the scent of hyacynth so clear;
Purple morning glories climbing up a garden wall,
And purple cala lillies, so graceful, and so tall;
Cyclomen and crocus, and pansies growing 'round,
Fairy umbrellas, and tulips covering the ground;
Wisteria and sweetpea, lilac and dahlia too,
So many shades of purple just waiting there for you;
A feast of colour for the eye, which shade do you like best?
Each one, another shade that sets off all the rest.
