Welcome to Calliope's Coffee House the proprietor of this establishment is Jacquie Reaville better known as The Book Imp.

When I started this place it was primarily for book reviews and thoughts on all things literary. Well the book reviews are still here, but somehow it's grown into a place for me and others to practice short fictional writing and of course a place where I can give my thoughts and opinions on virtually any subject that might take my fancy.

Hope you enjoy your visit.

Just to add that I welcome comments, the more the merrier. They don't even have to be related to books or writing just go wild (not too wild though).

Permissions are set so that even anonymous users can answer - but comment moderation is in effect which means I get to say yes or no to letting them appear here.

The Calliope Experiment #5

Here's this week's picture. Remember 500 words on what it puts into your mind. Put a link to your piece of work in the comments for this blog so that others can read, comment and perhaps join in the experiment in future.

Deadline for Experiment #5 - Saturday 14 June 2008

This week's contributors:

Smiley the Bandit by Kim L at Bold Blue Adventure

Taking Pictures by Trish at Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin’?


  1. I came across your writing prompt, and I've been trying to sit down and write a few times without success. I've finally got it, and my post is here

  2. I'm glad it sparked some inspiration for you. I enjoyed your story.

    Just for your information - All the links will be posted onto the actual experiment blog on Saturday so that people don't have to wade through comments. (That's wishful thinking LOL).

    But for those with feed readers they can just click on the links from there if they want to.

  3. Here's mine:



I welcome comments so please feel free to leave a message, the site allows Anonymous users but comment moderation is in effect. Which means I get to vet what you've written before it appears on the page (Oh the power!).
