A Visit From Grandma – Visual Verse Publication

Visual Verse March 2017I’m delighted to announce a new publication on Visual Verse. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but I absolutely love their monthly picture prompts and try my best to take part each month. The aim is to look at the picture and then give yourself 1 hour to write up to 500 words. The picture changes every month and they publish submitted pieces throughout the month so be sure to check back often. I have found that they tend to publish most pieces on a Friday.
