WEP…Write…Edit…Publish – BACK OF THE DRAWER WINNERS for February 2017

What an incredible challenge. The entries were magnificent, stupendous, amazing, awesome, imaginative, superb, outstanding, and any other descriptive adjective you can conjure for excellent. But dear entrants you’ve made it damn near impossible to put only one at the top! Which we actually love, such superb writing! A pure pleasure to read!



Kudos to Olga Godim, our badge designer and Nilanjana Bose, our prompt guru! BACK OF THE DRAWER was inspired and inspiring, as evidenced by the various tomes. . .
. . . a letter that leaves a marriage in turmoil. . . . a notebook full of memories, a connection to someone lost. . . . letters that revive a broken heart or detail the horrors of war. . . . the secret to longevity or the entrance to another dimension. . . . the inspiration for ghost stories or for the magic that saves lives or in some cases destroys them. . . . a warning, or the evidence that points to a murderer. Even dragons and elephants . . .
Such imagination, and truly exceptional writing. Congratulations, all of you! But there can only be one!

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL WINNERS
Those who made the shortlist were


Thanks, everyone, for an exciting introduction to a new year of fabulous WEP Challenges.

Don’t forget we hold them every other month now.
Our next one is April

According to the poem by Peace and Love by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
“Despair and hope may meet within one heart.”
So, April - the month inspired by poetry. It’s also the month of the A to Z challenge which takes our corner of the web by storm. The WEP Challenge falls on the ‘P’ day, so here’s your opportunity to fit into the ‘P’ category and participate in the A - Z and WEP at the same time, if you so desire. If you're not participating in the A - Z, go for it!
 But just because April is poetry month, it doesn’t mean you have to post poetry (do I hear a sigh of relief?) There are any number of ways you might express Peace & Love --
                   . . . a love story, a call for world peace, a refugee story, the possibilities are endless. . .
See you then, but be sure to return for the winner’s guest post!

We'd love if you'd Tweet one of these:

#WEPFF – BACK OF THE DRAWER FLASH FICTION CHALLENGE – SCANDAL? LOVE? FORTUNE?


Hi, folks! It’s February, and time for the WEP’s first challenge of the year - brought to you by the original imaginings of Nilanjana Bose, the creativity of Olga Godim, and your hosts, Denise Covey and Yolanda Renée! This month, let's go to the...

BACK OF THE DRAWER!

Just the thought that you could open a drawer and find a letter, a deed, a lottery ticket - sparks the imagination! What twist can you give this amazing prompt? Maybe you find a hidden door and open it to find a room full of priceless art? This is the basis of novels on the Paris apartment where exactly this happened. Here's one here!

It does happen! Just recently a man decided to spend a snow day cleaning house. He found a million dollar lottery ticket!

It's up to you! Create an artistic interpretation: a poem, a flash fiction piece of 1000 words or less, a non-fiction piece detailing your personal experience or someone else's experience, write a script, draw your dreams, or post a photograph or a photo essay. The genre is up to you. The artistic choice is yours. A scandal, a lost love found, a deed, a lottery ticket or the last will and testament naming you the sole beneficiary! Go for it!

What will you find at the BACK OF THE DRAWER?






Email Denise or Yolanda if you have more questions:

den.covey@gmail.com / yolandarenee@hotmail.com

Sign-up begins February 1st, but please note -- posting day is just that one Wednesday, February 15th! If you need to post earlier, go right ahead! We'll pick it up on the feed...

Please help us spread the word!
Share one or all of these tweets!
