Creative Writing Workshop

Students in grades 5-8 recently had an opportunity to submit an original creative essay with these writing prompt choices:

  • Out of the Box: Imagine finding a box. Write about opening it and what’s inside.
  • Eye Contact: Write about two people seeing each other for the first time.

Those students then met with members of the high school advanced composition class on January 12. Juniors and seniors met in small groups with individual writers and provided feedback and encouragement on student writing. Afterward, each small group collaborated together to write a creative two sentence catch for various genres.
