In the Lunchroom

Use your imagination to write the opening of a short story or poem inspired by this photo — or tell us about a memory from your own life that this image makes you think of.

Another option? Write from the point of view of one of the people in the image. What might this person be thinking and feeling?

Post your story in the comments, then read the related piece to learn more.
