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!

Sounds like a great idea Peadar - hope they get lots of takers. It seems that Ireland is full of poets so they wont notice if I dont take part.

Thanks for sharing- not sure what I
may trip on, but I'll have a look.

Sorry I've dropped by the wayside recently with the Bus - I've just been so busy with music that stringing words together creatively seems to be beyond me!

I must ride the bus. I must ride the bus. I must ride the bus. (She said, as she clicked her ruby red slippers.)

I've finally had time to check this out - VERY cool! And not really complicated (unless you want to post it to the site). I'm going to contemplate which picture to use & hopefully get mine posted on Sunday. And if it seems any good I'll load it on their site too :)

Thanks for the information! I stopped over, chose a photo and added my poem, A Brief Season here: http://photographprose.com/2011/02/04/a-brief-season/

I'm already registered - did that a week or so ago, but didn't write a poem. Will have to do so now.

Thanks for the shout out :) We're getting quite an incredible selection of talent hitting the site...and we're getting busier every day. Lot's of Irish attention, and here's the latest with poetry from Niamh Bagnell: http://bit.ly/efWltk

One point of clarification though. The images are owned by the photographers who submit to us, and therefore must remain on the site unless they give permission for you to copy them to your site. You can, of course, write your prose on your own site and link to the image on our site, but that link will only work until another writer adds their prose to that image, at which time the image is removed from the gallery. Drop us an email with any more questions...first and foremost we need to make sure we're protecting our contributing artists and their work.

I was going to do the motorcycle one, but my hands just kept on autowriting the words to 'Born to be Wild'...
