Today’s Word of the Week aka WOtW is fain which has many meanings, but as a verb it can mean to ‘welcome (a person)’ (The New Shorter Oxford English Dictionary) and that’s the meaning we’re looking for this week. You now have one week to produce a creative fain.
We’re looking for images that reflect the meaning of fain – be as tangential and inventive as you like. Post your image to:
EITHER: The Urban Flash group on Flickr and use the tag WOTW7
OR: Instagram using the hashtag #tpro_ldn_wotw7.
Write a piece of fiction, non-fiction or poetry (maximum 250 words) that includes the word fain. Paste the story into the body of an email and send to email@example.com. If you’re looking for a real challenge, submit a story using just 133 characters via Twitter using the hashtag #thisisurbanflash.
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. We’ll be featuring our favourites on the TPRoL website and we’re holding a monthly prize draw. March’s winners will receive a signed copy of one of Geoff Nicholson’s books.
