Writing Retreat Workshop Contest

We are having a retreat the first weekend of October.  The editors joining us are Eve Adler from Henry Holt and Lisa Yoskowitz from Dutton Children BFR.  One of the things we do at the retreat is to have a writing contest.  I thought I would share this years prompt with you.  Usually, it’s a written prompt, but this year it’s a picture.  Everyone writes a first page and it is judged by the two editors.  The winner receives a prize.  Below is the illustration done by the famous Chris van Allsberg from The Mysteries of Harris Burdick .  If you aren’t familiar with his art, take a minute and look him up on Amazon.  You won’t be disappointed.

Even though you can’t be part of the contest, you may want to write a first page and share it with us.  I will post the winner after the retreat.  Here it is:


Please share.  Kathy
