Hi all! Here is April’s Peeking Cat Perspectives. Here’s how it works:
1. Take a look at the image below and write something inspired about it. It can be a poem, prose, or just a few lines.
2. Submit your writing by commenting on this blog post. All posts are moderated just so that we don’t get any spam, so they might not appear straight away.
3. You might want to avoid looking at other people’s responses before you write your own, so that you’re not influenced by them. We want to get as many diverse pieces of writing as possible!
There is more information about Peeking Cat Perspectives here. I’m interested to see how differently art influences each of us! Who lives in this house? Where is it? Is it as isolated as it looks? Beautiful or haunting? Tell us.
