Using Pictures To Inspire Writing

As I mentioned in the previous post I really like the idea of using images to inspire thinking, reflection, discussion and creativity. Have you seen this? PicLits "is a creative writing site that matches beautiful images with carefully selected keywords in order to inspire you. The object is to put the right words in the right place and the right order to capture the essence, story, and meaning of the picture". How cool is that?

Hi, found your blog searching for creative writing prompters and inspiration, and consequently went from this blog to piclits, thanks for the concise and valuable recommendation. Much appreciated.

P.s could you possible tell me the font used on your blog for the labels underneath your articles? Thanks in advance.

Hi,
My daughter is doing a university level research project on creative writing using pictures for non-native English speaking students at the high school level.
Do you happen to know any research books or papers that discuss the effectiveness of creative writing using pictures? Research on the effectiveness of this method seems to be sparse.
