Picasso, between words and Pictures

We are currently getting ready to stage the latestPicasso in Words” micro-story writing competition!, which is now in its third year! The event was launched in 2010 as a joint venture between the Museu Picasso and the LletrA project at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC), and each year and we are happier with the level of participation and the results.

As in previous years we have selected a number of works by Picasso which we hope will inspire you to write a short story of 1,500 characters. The pictures we have chosen this year are: Portrait of Aunt Pepa, 1896; Fairground Stall, 1900; Blanquita Suárez, 1917, and Las Meninas (Infanta Margarita Maria), 1957.

What we’d like you to do is choose a Picasso and write a story inspired by that particular piece. Think, imagine, create: you’re welcome to follow any narrative thread that the picture suggests. And you have until Friday 25 May to send us your stories!
