Vivian Kirkfield’s -The #50PreciousWords Writing Contest
March 2 – 6
Kidlit writing contest – 50 words or less in honor of the incredible Theodore Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss.
The photo is of a real event—Pig Pageant Austin. It was put on in February to raise funds for an onsite medical clinic for Central Texas Pig Rescue. They wanted to raise $20,000 during the 3 hour pageant. They fell short at only $4,000. There’s still time to help them if you’re a pig fan.
And now…my entry at 48 words:
TERRIFIC PIG PAGEANT

What will you do?”
Stand tall. Head high.
wearing purple feathers with a touch of straw-dust
—how chic and European.”
