Visual Verse is “An Anthology of Art and Words.” Art, poetry, short fiction, and non-fiction accepted. It’s a non-paying publication, but great for exposure and testing your writing muscles. Basically, you get one image and one hour to write 50-500 words. And it has to be sent to them within the hour it gets sent to your email inbox. They have a new image every month, so you won’t know what you get until they send it to you.
It’s quite liberating to write on such a short time period. There’s little time to overthink and edit, and it will really help you hone that sort of natural part of you as a writer.
Hope you enjoy my piece “Coming Home,” and be sure to check out the other wonderful pieces as well. There’s a wide range of moods, even though it still comes from the same prompt. Visual Verse commented on their Twitter feed that my piece was “sinister.”
Have fun 🙂 !
