Writing Maps January Contest

BlueWrite about Blue Things.

The prompt for January’s Writing Contest is: Make a creative list of blue things. Write this list as a list poem, or in the form of a short story, a graphic story or a snippet of memoir. Fiction or autobiography, SF or mis mem, erotic or academic. Think blue skies and the deep blue sea, think music and the blues, think blue movies, blue collar, and blue plasters in restaurant kitchens. Think literally and metaphorically, what has been and is blue in your life or the life of a character. Maximum 150 words.

For list and colour inspiration, visit us on Twitter throughout the week. In the meantime, check out Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue, watch Derek Jarman’s Blue, read Julie Maroh’s Blue is the Warmest Colour.
