Writing the stories behind your photos

Writing the stories behind your photos

Starting to write can be a bit daunting for new or inexperienced writers and so this is why our course Writing the Stories Behind your Photos is such a great and fun way to take those first steps. In this course we will show you how you can use just one photo as a trigger to create a simple story. It doesn’t matter how short or long your stories are. The main thing is to capture those thoughts, observations and memories which may otherwise be forgotten.

  • Have you got a collection of photos which bring back personal memories?
  • Are you a family or local history researcher with a collection of photos you would like to bring to life?
  • Are you a scrapbooker who wants to explore the stories behind your photo collections?
  • Have you got a collection of photos which you don’t know much about but are curious to find out more?
  • Are you keen to explore different ways of preserving your memories and research?

A collection of photos is a great way of looking back and recalling memories but behind each of your photos there are hidden details and information that can easily be overlooked and forgotten.

Photos not only tell the story of an event, a place or of people, they are also part of our social history. In this course we therefore want to show you how you can look for the stories behind your photos and start to create your own pieces of history.

Because a photo has the power to stimulate your imagination and inspire ides they act as a great starting point for new and inexperienced writers
