Tales from the Funhouse

This post was written by guest blogger Wendy McClure.

My friend Ron, who runs the found-photo blog Big Happy Funhouse, has been having a weekly contest to write a story based on a vintage snapshot of his choosing, and if the photographs themselves aren’t enough to draw you in he’s also been offering old photos and cool retro junk as prizes. The picture and prizes for Contest 4 should be going up in the next couple days or so, and I’m one of the judges, so you’ll give me some good stuff to read, yes?

(You can even write a sestina like this guy did for Contest 1. It didn’t win, but I’ve been wanting to give it extra credit.)
