Creative writing tools - having fun with words and images


Here are some interesting writing tools to make writing activities 
more attractive.
You can play with words to create your text and 
you can link your words to images.
Then you can share your material.

Watch my simple examples.

PicLit
You choose an image from the Piclit gallery and you add some text. You can "drag and drop" choosing from different suggested nouns, adjectives and verbs or you can write "freestyle".
My example:

With Capzles you work most of all with images. You can choose an image as your background and then you can add your own pics or videos to create a sort of presentation. By clicking on each picture it is possible to add a brief description. I think it could be very useful to describe a trip or a school activity.
My example:

Mapskip
This is a very original tool. The world is a canvas for your own stories and photos. You start from a map, you click on the place you like, you add your mark and write your story about that place. You can tell your adventures adding your pictures.

My example:

With Storybird you choose some images and write a story drawing inspiration from those pictures. Very useful to write a story and improve creativity and imagination.

Magneticpoetry
You can write your own poems choosing among different suggested words. Very funny!
