The First Annual Thursday Doors Writing Challenge began on April 27, 2021. The members of the Thursday Doors community have graciously contributed doors to be used as inspiration, and some eager writers have already started to work from this inspiration to produce stories and poems.
Since we already have some writers who have posted some content. I am listing the written works in the first list. I took the liberty of adding a title to some work that was untitled. Beneath that the list of source images. There is still plenty of time to be inspired and join this challenge. Written entries can be contributed until noon on May 29, 2021.
