PrintSharpen your pencil…We couldn’t help but think that writers may have something to say about a year-long pandemic. Need an outlet for your thoughts?

“Write me a picture!” This year instead of having photos for you to choose from we are inviting you to write 500 words or less about the picture that will remain in your memory of the year (2020) that seemed to stand still.

Share your story and give a $5.00 donation to Northville Art House to be included in a commemorative booklet capturing a story of the pandemic as seen through the eyes of real people, like you and me.

Entries and donations accepted until Friday, May 21, 2021
Send them to: Preservation Dental – ATTN: Denise Jenkins – 371 E. Main St. – Northville MI 48167


FESTIVAL RECEPTION: Friday, June 18, 2021 |  7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

This year we honor the 2020 Short on Words Authors at Arts and Acts, behind the Northville Art House, 215 W. Cady. There will be light refreshments, formal introductions, readings, and maybe a few surprises – Perhaps a sneak peek at 2022 Short on Words! We hope you can join us!
