Open to Interpretation brings together photographers and writers in an exciting and innovative book project that has never been done before. The project is a collaborative book bringing together photographers, poets and writers. Each book begins with a themed call for photos. The chosen photos become the literary inspiration for the writers' submissions. A book is created that matches each winning photo with two stories or poems that offer different interpretations of the image. The unique collaboration adds new dimensions to both the photos and the written word. The photographs for the Water's Edge theme have been chosen (we had just over 1500 images submitted by 290 photographers from 22 countries and 33 states.) And it's time for writers and poets to interpret the images. 1. View the images at 2. Choose image(s) that inspire 3. Craft your interpretation of the image in poetry or prose 4.
