Poetry: up to 5 poems, formatted for a 6×9 page
Visual art: black and white, at least 300 dpi

September Writing Challenge: Myths & Legends

Write a piece (100-1000 words) on a myth or legend from your life. It can be something you grew up with, something you discovered later in life, something you’ve always been guided or intrigued or haunted by, something entirely invented from your own pure brain, or something you share with others in a culture, a region, the world. Any and all myths are fair game, but we want to hear about the ones that obsess you. Bring a copy to the September meeting and/or post as comment here to share with others!
