Topic Post – Week One, February

Curiouser & Curiouser

queen of heartsCuriouser & curioser
grew the child in you.
Wishing for a rabbit hole
she might, headlong, trip into.

Down & Down
dreams to buffet the fall.
Wonder at the bottom wells
starlight beckons down the hall.

Writing & writing
with brevity and measured care.
Nibbling words to fit again
through doors what may return her there.





For the month of February, we will be hosting a series of weekly mini contests for drabbles. If you are unfamiliar, a drabble is a short work of fiction of around one hundred words in length (not including the title). The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author’s ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in a confined space.

For our purposes, we will require exactly 100 words or less. You may submit up to three per week as long as they are all related to the theme, but not to each other. You do not need to single one out for competition, they are all eligible.

Your topic for mini contest 1 of 4 is “Curiouser & Curiouser”, interpret it however you like.

Concurrent with the contest, we will have a workshop open for anyone who would like to practice their drabble prowess for a live audience before the deadline hits. Share your thoughts and difficulties with fellow embers and the mod team a dedicated drabble forum.
