|Deadline:||Jun 30, 2011|
Pedro Meyer is a pioneer and one of the most recognized representatives of contemporary photography. His photographic narratives use the traditional storytelling tools of empathy, analogy and humor. Create a piece of flash fiction (1000 words or less) or a work of poetry (50-500 words or less) inspired by the photograph "Grandma's Picture" by Pedro Meyer.

The two first prizes were generously donated by a Scribophile member who wishes to remain anonymous. Thank anonymous Scribber!
Your flash/poem can happen anywhere and be about anyone. Use your imagination, and good luck!
