The Thousand Words Project (TWP) gets its name from the old adage “A picture is worth a thousand words.” But relax! Nobody expects you to write a thousand words.
By taking part in TWP, you will write, but writing exercises will focus
on building observation skills, for the most part. All you have to do
is look at pictures and respond to questions. True, we will be asking
you to write, but through our exercises, we are confident that you will
find writing to be easier and more enjoyable than you ever imagined.
So, sharpen your pencils and grab some paper, or even use your computer
and get ready to explore how you can learn about making and looking
at pictures while simultaneously learning about how to write better
and more easily!
