Hi! We’re August and Jill! We formed this partnership of words in 2012, after seeing a list of very strange and disturbing and awesome old images that had no explanation. We decided to give each of those 50 photos its own story … and the rest is history.

Our writing challenge changes every year, but the one thing each story has in common is an underlying speculative nature, from all flavors of fantasy to sci-fi, literary to experimental, nothing is off limits.

Though we come from very different writing backgrounds, we find this only strengthens our partnership. We are each other’s biggest fan and toughest critic!

Thank you for reading and for your support in this ever-changing, always challenging project.
