Create a PicLit | Inspired Picture Writing | PicLits.com

PicLits.com is a creative writing and e-learning site that matches beautiful images with carefully selected keywords in order to inspire you. It is a forum for creative writing, social interaction, and can also be used as a teaching tool.
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:

A simple but effective way of connecting language and imagery. With Piclits you can add words to the images you select. They are helpfully organized into nouns, adjectives, adverbs and other and some of the adjectives can be changed to their comparative or superlative form by clicking them. You can also capitalize the words for effect, say if you are writing poetry.
