World Travelers: Friday Fictioneers

Published July 18, 2014 by rochellewisoff

Every week at least one hundred global writers shorten the distance by sharing  their flash fictions based on a single photo prompt. I have the honor and privilege of  hosting the Friday Fictioneers challenge created by Madison Woods three years ago. I’ll probably never meet each one face to face, although I’ve been able to meet up with a few.

This past week, Friday Fictioneers Bill and Janet Webb had lunch Sandra Crook and her husband Neville on their boat in France.

Also among our world travelers is Dawn Landau who lives in Washington state met with fellow fictioneer Björn Rudberg for lunch in Stockholm.

I love putting more than faces to names, don’t you?

  • So cool, Rochelle. I read Bjorn’s poetry pretty regularly, and it’s good to see him in person & looking so happy (as you know, his works can sometimes be bleak, though beautiful and well written). I don’t think I know the other folks, but it’s awesome they had a get-together. Thanks for sharing this.


  • What fun to be able to meet! I don’t think any other FF live in Tenerife, so my connections will remain virtual. Bjorn’s poetry is lovely and he and Sandra comment regularly on my stories.


  • This is absolutely wonderful! Rochelle I hope and pray that you are doing well. Will be getting back into the writing groove here soon!


  • I’ve loved meeting the Fictioneers I’ve had the good fortune to meet, hate the near-misses with those I almost got to meet, lol, and look forward to posts like these where I can see others getting to meet🙂


    • Dear Rochelle and Madison. This is so cool getting to meet each other – and Madison, thanks for starting the Fictioneers! I’m new so you probably don’t know me, but I like the pictures you submitted and Rochelle and done a wonderful job with this group. This is more fun than a barrel of monkeys (although my son who has been to India said that monkeys are little monsters spitting at you.) Thank you Rochelle, and some day when I grow up, I would like to meet you all (I’m 64). Nan 🙂


        • Dear Madison and Nan,

          My main motive was not to let Friday Fictioneers die. In a few months it had become one o the most important things in my life, not just because of the writing, but because of the friends I’d made. I never dreamed it would become what it has.

          We will meet, Nan. There are now four of us in the KC area so I think, when you’re up to it, we’ll make time.

          Always grateful to you Madison.




  • This is wonderful, Rochelle! Thanks for carrying on the work and helping keep all of us connected. I look forward to hearing of more connections across the miles and perhaps even making some of my own one day.
