Visual Verse

Visual Verse is the work of Preti Taneja.

She describes it thus:

Visual Verse is a collaboration. An anthology of art, poetry, short fiction and non-fiction.

We supply a compelling image and invite writers – published or unpublished – to submit a piece in response. There is a catch: you must write it within one hour and it must be between 50 and 500 words.

Visual Verse is a celebration. Of the drama of seeing and the desire to express it. Of the things that inspire us, move us, and that we find hardest to articulate.

Visual Verse is a challenge. We offer you the chance to experience the rush of writing without overthinking. Sometimes strange, sometimes beautiful, let the picture be the start of something you can’t predict: your own response.

The latest image is by , and here’s a clip:

So I couldn’t resist. My effort is near the bottom, so you will have to scroll down. It’s titled, ‘We Took To The Rain‘, and it’s on page 92.
