PicLits - Inspired Picture Writing: PicLits is a creative writing site that matches beautiful images with carefully selected keywords in order to inspire you and it offers a fun way to learn new vocabulary and play with word forms and sentence structure. 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. Here are poems done with PicLits. Choose from a variety of photos. Then drag and drop nouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, prepositions, and punctuation to create your own description with a few words long or a whole paragraph. Change the tense of the verbs and the form of the nouns (plural, possessive, capital). You may also Freestyle (write your own caption using the words you know). You may email your PicLit to your teacher or friends. You can also save it in the Public Gallery and view other PicLits. Here are some ideas for using PicLits in the classroom. See how PicLits may be used for creativity.
