The latest Poetry Bus challenge
Something a little different this week.There is a new website of Photography and writing HERE
called Photograph Prose- 'The virtual collision of photographers and writers'
I saw it on Nuala Ní Chonchúirs blog HERE and put 3 photos in and a bit of prose, which they took,real quick and painless.
So painless that I want you to visit the site have a look at the pics and words already exhibited then visit the 'UP exhibit' (clickable along the top of the page) and choose a picture to inspire some words. There's a simple registration process that takes two minutes.( email and password, I think)
Then you can either submit those words to the website for a selection process (simply click on the photo and it will appear with a title box and a box to put your prose /or poem in) or just post it on your blog, or both, as they don't mind, but don't copy the pictures to your blog for copyright reasons.
It's a nice opportunity to try to get published without any hassle, just fill in the box with words and the selection process takes only 72 hours. How cool is that? The site is in it's infancy so now is a good time to try. C'mon bus poets, have a go!
(You can submit photos too, if you like)
Get thee gone now and get stuck in, good luck!
