Stories at the Park

Stories at the Park, is a series presented by Seanchai Library in association with Holly Kai Park. It coincides with the monthly Art at the Park exhibitions at Holly Kai Park. Each month, story writers and poets from Seanchai Library and beyond are invited to visit Holly Kai Park and view the 2D and 3D art on display, and then to write a short story (“drabble”) or  a poem about any of the pieces of art which inspire them, with the following criteria applied:

  • Stories must be  exactly 100 words in length
  • Poems can be UP TO 100 words, but no longer, and in any format  (blank verse, iambic pentameter, haiku, sonnet, whatever appeals).

Submitted stories are then read in the live voice session for each Stories at the Park event, which take place at the Holly Kai Gallery, allowing attendees to both listen to the stories and explore the art for themselves. All stories are presented in voice, and can be read by the authors or if they prefer, have one of the Seanchai Library staff read their work. Submitted stories are also published in this blog – see the index below for past events.
