A writing platform that works; YWP support as you need it.


This is a year-long project. Create a photo story that shows how your community celebrates various holidays through the seasons. 

  • Reflect on how your community celebrates holidays. During these holiday times, take a walk around your community and document what you see.
  • Take photos of decorations, parades, that special spooky Halloween house, the Harvest market, anything that captures the essence of the time. 
  • Observe and write down the sights, sounds, smells, and feelings you encounter on your walk. Record as much detail as you can.
  • Collect the photos and descriptions for a year-long photo story of your town.
  • Is there a holiday that is missing in your town? Make a proposal to your town government to organize an event around it. (They are more likely to react positively if you offer them a solution, rather than a problem.)
