Pic Lits

PicLit from PicLits.com
See the full PicLit at PicLits.com

Pic Lits is magnetic poetry – only better for a couple of reasons:

1.  You use a photo as a visual stimulus for your writing

2.  You are not limited to a selected set of words

To get started, go to the home page and choose a picture that inspires you and then add your thoughts directly to the picture.  You can choose to drag and drop words from a menu below the picture or use the “freestyle” option (like I did for the one linked to above) so that you aren’t limited by the available words.

If you want to save or share your PicLit, you must register for a free account.  Very easy – you provide your email, a password, and a pen name and you are ready to unleash your inner poet!

Interested to see how others were inspired by the same photo once you have completed and saved yours?  Click on the option beneath your saved work.

    Thanks for the Kudos. We are getting some excellent submissions and the usual amount of below average efforts. All in all we are busy during the week and slow on the weekends. It appears that language arts teaachers and ESL/ELL teachers are our largest user base. We have barely scratched the surface. DRAG-N-DROP is more conducive to teaching the fundamentals such as grammar, punctuation, spelling, vocabulary etc. It does take more time but the quality appears to be higher. We get all kinds of writing: from a sentence/caption to a poem and even a short story or two. We appreciate the posting. We welcome ideas and feedback.
