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

Autumn by Merthyn Vintner

I met you in the summer,
I wooed you in the fall;
'mongst all the women I'd ever met,
The loveliest one of all.

And all throughout the autumn
I got to know you better;
each day with you was ever bright,
not changing like the weather.

We laughed and played in autumn fields
with autumn leaves around,
and all the while I marvelled at
this woman I had found;

Your gypsy soul so feisty,
your passion and your laugh.
And by the end of autumn you'd
become my better half.

My autumn love, my sweetheart,
you said you'd marry me,
and made of me the happiest man
that I could ever be.

We love now through the autumn,
through spring and winter, too.
We love no less in summer, but
it's autumn brought me you.
