I’m starting a game. It’s a word game. It’s a word association game.

There Was Nowhere is a literary website that publishes your words in the form of poetry, prose and creative non-fiction as long as you play along.

Each new piece must take inspiration from something already on the site, whether it is a word, phrase, or theme from any of the three categories. We get inspiration from everywhere, so why not use each other? Each piece will be published with a link to attach it to the piece it originally took inspiration from, creating a web of ongoing literary goodness. Imagine it like the word association game, but with literature.

‘There was no where to go but everywhere’ is a Jack Kerouac quote from the Dharma Bums…So however you choose to look at it, get writing.
