This week’s Word of the Week aka WOtW is recondite which means ‘Of things: Removed or hidden from view; kept out of sight.’ (The Shorter Oxford English Dictionary).


We’re looking for images that reflect the meaning of recondite – be as tangential and inventive as you like.  Post your image to:

EITHER:  The Urban Flash group on Flickr and use the tag WOTW3

OR:  Instagram using the hashtag #tpro_ldn_wotw3.


Write a piece of fiction, non-fiction or poetry (maximum 250 words) that includes the word recondite. Paste the story into the body of an email and send to wotw@tprol.co.uk.  If you’re looking for a real challenge, submit a story using fewer than 140 characters via Twitter using the  hashtag #pr17w3.

The WOtW challenge is the warm-up for our forthcoming Urban Flash competition where words and images will collide to create a new collaborative, creative universe.  Each week, we’ll be finding a word and inviting participants to submit their interpretation of that word either photographically or textually. February’s winners will receive a signed copy of Geoff Nicholson’s The London Complaint: A Celebration of the Capital’s Maladies.
