We want to see more creative writing and photography, drawings, paintings, et al, come through our site, The Moon Seen in Water. We are interested in a non-dogmatic Eastern Religion based theme, like Taoism but not only Taoism, Buddhism but not only … you see ? We are also interested in nature with Spirit moving through it… Haiku– love poetry…
Short short stories with some of these themes. Well plotted stories about people who are in some kind of trouble and use this as an occasion to discover a sort of liberation in themselves and others. Stories about anything well plotted and well written for that matter.
Prize? $10. and publication– and celebration on Facebook and Twitter, etc. and on our other blog, quarryhillcreativecenter.blogspot.com
Another theme we like is childhood, children being treated well, children seeing magic in all things, children being helped, not hurt, by adults. Yes. We are rather pollyannaish people.
But we will also read about upsetting things, however, we like for these things to have some kind of conclusion or liberative quality. We like The Dalai Lama, Rilke, Whitman, Blake, sometimes Salinger,
Alfred Bester, sometimes Emily Dickinson, and lots of other stuff.
Deadline? How about May 21, 2012– because I have to leave on a trip around then.
People connected or not connected with QH are equally welcome to participate.
