The Talking Camera: Creative, Descriptive Writing

The Talking Camera: Creative, Descriptive Writing


Moments are meant to be lived, whether they are being experienced for the first time or relived for the thousandth time. What can one scene tell us? What is held in a single moment? Students dive into the photos and derive their own stories from the pixels. What happened? What will spring to life when we take a look? Students discover how to turn moments into memories with descriptive language.
