A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, BUT You Get 500
As you might be aware, the average Picture Book published these days is around 500 words. So how do you keep your words sparse yet give your story depth? It’s harder than it looks. But we have a fun exercise to inspire both writers and illustrators across all genres.
In our April LitMingle, we will present a photo or illustration and let you write the accompanying text. It’s up to you if you want to work on plot, dialogue, character, or setting. Let the image inspire you. There will be a chance to share and give feedback. Remember, there are no wrong answers.
Please bring paper, pen or pencil, and your imagination!
