Self guided Adult Kids Storytelling Writing & literature Youth & teens

A Postcard Story is a story or poem that is 100 words maximum. By nature, it is short and sweet—like writing a real postcard—and can be written by adults and children alike. Think small, but fun, and really engaging. This year’s theme for Culture Days is: Unexpected Intersections. Normally, you might send friends and loved ones a postcard while you’re travelling or when you’re far from home. But now, under these strange new circumstances, why not write a postcard from home? Do you have memories and moments from a special place, or from previous Culture Days weekends? What are some of the unexpected intersections you have faced, or are currently facing? Share your postcard here, and remember… keep it to less than 100 words. We may even pick a story or two to be displayed in one of our outdoor poster boxes for the community to see. Deadline to send your story is September 28, 2020 at 11:59pm.

This event runs the duration of Culture Days.
