The art of storytelling

on March 6, 2012

Today we are starting a new interesting project. We are reading and creating short stories using illustrations by artists around the world. The web application we are going to use can be found on the website www.storybird.com

Activity 1: Read the following stories and learn about the typical expressions that are used in short stories.

storyyy

Activity 3: Create your own short story between five and ten pages. Select one artist, feel the inspiration, choose the pictures and enjoy the art of storytelling. First sign up, create the pages and save your project. Finally, publish your digital book and don’t forget to invite me to read your short story.

Send a comment! Write an interesting summary of your story and insert the link to your Storybird creation.

I hope you enjoy this project!
