#WEPff winners for the August GARDENS challenge! Please pop in and say congratulations!

Hello Everyone!



Thanks to all who participated during the 2016 August GARDENS WEP challenge. The entries were truly amazing and made reading a pure pleasure. What creativity on the theme. Obviously we love our gardens and see all sorts of possibilities for ideas within.  If you still haven't finished reading, please continue, using the DL links on the previous post.

And once again, we thank Olga Godim for her excellent badges which we've now used as the winners' badges!

We value each and every story submitted to WEP, but there is the excruciating choice of choosing just one winner amongst the many of winning quality. Yolanda and I agree that is the hardest part of this job. Here is a quick overview of the entries (in  no particular order): 

The entries that fired our imaginations and made the long list are:


Elephant's Child
Olga Godim
Pat Garcia
Kate McManus
Nilanjana Bose


So without further ado – The Winners!
  
THE WINNER OF THE
2016 WEP August GARDENS CHALLENGE IS:

Nilanjana Bose!
with her amazing poem. If you haven't read it already, pop by the link in Nila's name above.




As one commenter said, "'This is astounding poetry. Rich, rich imagery that sweeps the earth, past, present, and future. By the second stanza I'm enthralled ... "and thrown them like javelins straight and hard,
when the meek come to leash the elite;'" Ann Best.

Congratulations Nila!

Please accept the winner's badge and display on your blog with a link to your excellent story.

#WEPFF – WEP FLASH FICTION GARDENS CHALLENGE

We're back! It's been a busy year for many of us, which is a good thing when you're a writer. The A to Z challenge, book tours, travel plans, and new projects has kept the WEP silent since February. We thank you for your patience, support, and especially for your continued enthusiasm!


The Gardens prompt is all about creativity. What picture comes to mind when you hear the word 'garden' - the spectacular beauty of carefully landscaped tiers – the fresh delights of a new snowfall on frozen branches – or the haunting beauty of shadows and wilted plants at dusk on a fall night. 

Please share your poetry, photography, artistry, or writing skills in a flash fiction piece inspired by a garden!

Your choice of medium, genre, word count (1000 maximum) and how the prompt inspires you!




PLEASE COMMENT /  EMAIL AFTER POSTING YOUR MASTERPIECE
Email Denise or Yolanda if you have more questions:
den.covey@gmail.com / yolandarenee@hotmail.com

Here's the code if you wish to publish on your blog.
