We hope you're enjoying the Year of Art
Laura is the host for this month. All of our challenges this year have been blessed with enthusiastic participation and wonderful entries. We hope you will continue that with FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Given the importance of this topic, we have no doubt that you will all give us your best work.
As only Direct Links are now posted, you don't have to add DL after your name.
Once again, we're going with WEP lite. That means:
- Comment counting. We rely on your goodwill to read as many entries as you can, remembering how it sucks if only 2 people read yours. Don't let this happen! We applaud you for reading as many posts as you were able.
- Blurbs. Blurbs are a lot of work. We'll hold off on them again until further notice.
- Constant post monitoring. We'll still try to check the website and C-Box daily, but for urgent queries, email Denise at email@example.com OR Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org. That way we have the time zones covered
- Shortlist created by the team and judging by Nick Wilford

The Scream by Edvard Munch was a shoo-in for October - this challenge is devoted to the horror genre in honour of the Halloween/Samhain/observances of the other world spirits. Go as creepy as you like. But other genres are welcome too, there’s no genre police here, except that non-negotiable no to erotica.
This is a world renowned artwork symbolising the horror and angst of the human condition. It has since its creation in 1893, become an iconic representation of modern life. Read about The Scream here.
Edvard Munch was a Norwegian born artist who split much of his working life between Berlin and Paris. Mental health issues ran in the family, so Munch had occasion so observe its effects from close proximity. He was much influenced by Impressionists and post-Impressionists such as van Gogh.
The prompt is wide open to interpretations - who will it be that screams? And why – in pain, terror or exultation?
Will it be a human scream that rends the air? Or an animal one? Or a scream from another world altogether? Or will it be a cosmic scream of the planet?
A silent scream in colours, like the one Munch felt in a sunset sky above a fjord? Or an articulated one in sound and words? Just a gasp or piercingly loud? That’s up to you, we’ve got our ears cocked and ready listening for it.
We'd love if you'd Tweet Tweet Tweet some/all of these:
