#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.

  1. I am in I think. Though it seems to be a strange piece.

  2. Here we go again! I'd be happy with strange Sue. I can't decide which way to go this time but I know it'll be fun.

    1. I love strange, and especially that this challenge inspired some exciting writing for my Snowman WIP. And to be honest I keep wondering where this story will take me. The antagonist seems to be a bigger character than the protagonist. I hope I find the balance!

  3. I'm going to join this WEP challenge, but not sure which way my imagination will go, either. Working on it. . .

    1. I'm glad to see you, D.G. I've struggled with this one, not being much of a gardener and all, but i do love to wander in a beautiful garden someone else has sweated over, LOL!!

    2. I love gardens and once wrote a college essay while sitting in my grandmother's beautiful garden. So inspirational, and I got high marks, but today, well, I went in an entirely different direction. Must be the influence of the times! :)

  4. Signed up! I have a feeling mine's going to be influenced by this strangeness too :)

  11. Hey everyone! Pat Hatt is up as is Kate McManus! Look in the right hand sidebar and you can easily see who's posted in case we lag with the Direct Link (DL)!

    Everyone who's participating has a link on this blog. Some past participants also.

  13. Direct Link: http://dghudson-rainwriting.blogspot.ca/2016/08/a-garden-of-darkness-wep-gardens.html I've posted a little early this time due to appointments and etc. Let me know if any problems adding the direct link. I've already visited some of the other entrants and look forward to seeing more.

  15. Hi Sue. I was attending to that as you wrote. She's posting at 6am ET and I have no idea what that is. It'll show on the blog roll and I will add DL then. Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience. :-)

  16. Hi folks, just want to apologize for the slow response to commenting on posts. It's a busier day here than expected, and the internet hasn't even been switched out yet, but I promise I'll get to all the posts before the end of the week! So far, they are incredible! Thank you all for participating!

  17. A huge thank you to Denise and Yolanda and everyone who participated. I have spent some delightful hours exploring the colours, textures and scents from some very different gardens.

  18. I enjoyed this challenge and have visited all the entrants, Yolanda and Denise. There are some great takes on this prompt! I only had trouble commenting on one entrant's story (may have been a WP, or a web site) When I looked for my comment it was wiped, nada. Perhaps it was due to my being a Blogger site, but c'est la vie. Thanks for hosting WEP, it inspires me.

    1. Hi, D. G.
      I had the same problem, but I'll go back and try again. Otherwise, it's been a truly lovely experience!

      Thanks to everyone who participated!

    2. Thanks for your great support, D.G. There were some really fabulous entries. I think i was able to comment on everyone's but I opened up a WP site to overcome this silly blogger/WP problem.

      Until next time...
