Writing Prompt: City I Love

Writersmelon-contest-cityIlove- False-Ceilings-Amit-Sharma

“For those who are lost, there will always be cities that feel like home.” ― Simon Van Booy


cityIlove1.2Each of us must have been enthralled by the cities we have lived in. It’s time to wrap up your feelings for a city you’ve loved. It may be the one you grew up in, did your college with loads of memories now, joined your first job and loved it, or the one you periodically visited to meet your grandparents.

Cities change, but people don’t. You may write about your fond memories, or about a re-visit that made you feel the city has changed.

You may also write about lores on a city that you might have listened to as a bedtime story from your parents or grandparents and how it is different from the present.

Write a short story or poem on any of the above ideas and we’ll publish the best on Writersmelon and award them. The entries will be judged by author Amit Sharma whose debut novel False Ceilings is in focus this month on Writersmelon.

Please read the rules below carefully.

Spin a little story or poem on a city you have lived and loved.
