Just Rod, the author of the blog Reflections in Puddles, has graciously allowed us to use his photo for this writing contest on the theme of “Vision.”
Look at those eyes; what do they see?
You may choose to consider the present vision before the subject’s eyes, his interior vision, or a combination of both. Or you may choose to write about what you see or imagine when you look at this photo.
Write an essay, short-short story or prose poem.
If you’re happy with the results of what this prompt does for you, consider entering your work in our next “people’s choice” literary contest:
- We are looking for a short work in response to the photo on this page.

- 500 words or less. You may write as few words as you choose. Any entry exceeding 500 words will be disqualified. The title and author bio are excluded from the word count.
- Submit your entry in the body of an email (no attachments accepted) to email@example.com
- In the subject line of the email, type vision contest.
- Include your name (as you wish it credited upon publication), your contact email (for our use only, will not be published or shared), and the web or blog address you would like us to link to if we publish your submission.
- Submission deadline is 11:59pm on July 21, 2014.
- Submissions will be published on Rose Hall Media Company’s website during the months of July-August, 2014.
- Carefully edit your work before submitting. We will not publish error-filled writing.
- Rose Hall Media reserves the right to not publish any submissions which contradict our values and preferences.
- We remind you:
- The authors we partner with write purposefully, intelligently and creatively to share their stories, their ideas, and their expertise.
- Although they believe in biblical precepts of wisdom, accepting a loving God who justly admonishes us to live by faith, in hope, with kindness and compassion, they do not necessarily write about religion or faith. They seek to encourage and inspire readers to live wisely, honestly and well.
- If they do share their faith, they do so in a gentle, respectful and non-preachy manner.
- We’re not interested in publishing stories or philosophies that blatantly contradict traditional Judeo-Christian ethics. We don’t publish gratuitous or graphic sex, violence, profanity or cynicism.
By publishing your work as a guest on this site, you will create a link to your website or blog, which can help move your site higher up in search result rankings.
