Do you remember when you used to play OUTSIDE growing up, in woods and fields and streets and vacant lots, haunted houses, creeks, and canoes? I sure do!!!

I want you to write a short story or poem that takes you for a walk through that magical time of unstructured play time outdoors... be it having tea under your grandma's rose bush, or building forts and stockpiling walnuts to chase the neighborhood bully off the platground! Tell me about your special times, places, and companions... just make sure it is about the outdoors!


Again... I'm a grad student! No money...
