What is it?

Turn a read into a flippagram story

What sort of space will you need?

You can do it online


Step one: Find a quote, book, article or blog you like the look of.

Step two: Pull some words from it. You can either use a quote, or use one or two sentences to tell the story in your own words. For example, if you like the story of Game of Thrones, you might simply use the first line: 'The morning had dawned clear and cold, with a crispness that hinted at the end of summer'. Or you could hack the whole story to: 'A girl replaces her sister in a fight to the death'.

Step three: Find your photos. You could use pictures or photos you already have, or take new ones that fit together with the words you've picked.

Step four: Hack them together. We've used the app Flipagram to #hackreading, but you could a paint application on the computer, or even pen and paper if you prefer, writing with thick pen over the top of your images.
