About who

A Picture, A Story is a blog written by me, Tanya Clarke. I love to take photographs and write stories.

In 2018, I completed this online creative writing course*. It was magical. I loved it. I now have a draft of a short story and motivation (as well as the tools) to uncover more. One of the things I learnt is that daily writing takes a warm-up and practice. And commitment too. Inspired by this, I have decided to use my ever growing archive of photographs as material for story prompts.

A Brit in Canada, I live with my husband and two children, halfway up a mountain, next to the rainforest in North Vancouver.
