The VAJ Writing Contest

The VAJ Writing Contest just went live. Deadline is November 15, 2009

A picture is worth a thousand words, as they say, and that is your assignment. Well, more accurately, 500 — 600 words.

Write about the above photo art, Valle Pintado by Aggie Villanueva. Study the image, Valle Pintado means painted valley, and then write a story that this photo art inspires. You don’t have to write only fiction. Enter an essay if that’s what this image inspires in you. (No poetry please until we have poetry judges.)

Here's the link to the contest and for all the rules and regulations. Good Luck!

Hi, Elena,

This contest is such a wonderful idea. The picture evokes a number of ideas.

We're both part of Yvonne Perry's tour.
