Pic-Lits is “inspired picture writing”…
“PicLits.com is a creative writing site that matches beautiful images with carefully selected keywords in order to inspire you. The object is to put the right words in the right place and the right order to capture the essence, story, and meaning of the picture.”
Pic-Lits gives the user a choice to either drag and drop words (categorized by parts of speech) that relate to the picture or to go to the “free style” tab and add writing to the Pic-Lit on their own. Then, they can save, blog/share or e-mail their creation.
Here’s a quick Pic-Lit I created using the free style format.
The site includes a “Learn It” section where writing suggestions are given.
How would this site inspire the writers in your classroom?
