Feghoot (also known as a story pun or poetic story joke) is a humorous short story or vignette ending in a pun (typically a play on a well-known phrase) where the story contains sufficient context to recognize the punning humor. It can be considered a type of shaggy dog story. Wikipedia.

Flash fiction is a fictional work of extreme brevity that still offers character & plot development. … Some commentators have suggested that flash fiction possesses a unique literary quality, in its ability to hint at or imply a larger story.Wikipedia

drabble is a short work of fiction of one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author’s ability to express interesting & meaningful ideas in a confined space. Wikipedia

  • To engage our audience works must be:
    • Original (no copies of elements or whole works by others
    • Never before seen in a Collective show. Meaning these three shows each need different work!!
  • The Board reserves the right to decline items not deemed appropriate – being respectful to host sites.
  • Works must be prepared for hanging as explained in CAGAC Hanging Instructions.
  • Works will be included based on number of participants & space available.

    • I’m a photographer too so yes of course “prints” are our medium and I will fight for us!! ;-). The idea here was (if I understand correctly) to avoid the prints (copies) of paintings to be displayed for sale. Having said this, I agree that this will eventually turn into a much bigger grey area !
