The stories at +Every Photo Tells... are usually no longer than 3,000 word (or 30 minutes), but for our recent trawl of the photo archives we relaxed the limits and now present the longest story that has ever been submitted to EPT. A tale of a space-faring mother-daughter team of saboteurs who pick up an unexpected guest...

A legend from the old country, the Selkie, is featured in the latest short story at EPT. This one was a joint effort by our hosts +Katharina Maimer and +Mick Bordet . After this we'll start revisiting some older photos from the past. We've had some people finish stories that missed previous deadlines and some people start new stories, free to choose a photo from our collection.

A new story by +Mick Bordet, "Freedom" is now available.

Juliette wakes up to find herself safe from the abusers, but something far more dangerous lies in her future and only her gentle rescuer knows the truth of his dark secret.

You probably shouldn't listen to this one if there's a full moon out.

Time to start writing a panda story!
 
We have a new photo to kick off the next season on Every Photo Tells... We have until the end of the month to come up with stories inspired by this photograph and then we'll podcast the stories and start the process again in June. Think you could write a short story about this fellow? We take submissions from other authors, so get writing!

Would you like heightened senses or increased athletic performance? All with no side-effects? What if these could only be supplied by a mysterious stranger with a desire for blood?

The latest story at EPT is "Pills", by +jrmurdock, author of V&A Shipping and Billy Barbarian.

Story
Tagline
Fortnightly podcast stories based on a photograph.
Introduction

Images, scents, music:  these are some of the strongest triggers of the memory and imagination.

If you hear a song, it can take you back to the time you first heard it.  You can focus on the music, enjoying the instrumentation, dancing to the beat or analysing the  structure.  The lyrics might inspire you or remind you of events from your past, they can make you think, laugh or even cry.  Like the elephant and the blind men, a song can mean different things to different people.

Take a photograph and show it to someone.  Will they focus on the subject? Is it someone or some place they know? Is there something that catches their eye in the background?  If they know nothing of the people or places within, will they imagine their own stories behind them?  Is that girl smiling because she’s in love or because she’s happy with her new red shoes? Is that car sitting by the road abandoned or has the driver run out in search of his lost dog?

On the last Monday of every month we present a photograph on this site and follow it up with at least two short stories inspired by it.  We may come up with different stories about the main subject or completely unrelated tales about what is happening in the background.  The stories are released in the form of a fortnightly podcast available for free download from this website. Guest writers provide additional stories based on the same prompt, increasing the frequency of episodes each month.
