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 #6

Brought back by popular demand of well... me.

Here are links to the previous weeks contributors.

#1, #2, #3, #4, #5

It's been a while since the last challenge so just to recap on what this is about - take a copy of the pictures that I post here and then write 500 words or more fiction on your own blog, then post the link to that entry back here in the comment section for everyone else to see, visit and hopefully comment on your creative writing. Much as is being done for countless other groups in blogger, multiply and elsewhere.

A new image will go up as and when I get around to it usually every two weeks. You're welcome to copy the button and post it on your blog too if you wish. The link to go with the button is http://jacbookishly.blogspot.com/search/label/Calliope%20Ex

All photographs, deadlines and links to contributors blogs can be reached by clicking The Calliope Experiment button in my sidebar. Any suggestions for images would be greatly appreciated.

And 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 #6 - Sunday 4th January 2009
