In November, librarians Caroline and Kat hosted a series of creative writing sessions for kids and teens. We enjoyed talking about National Novel Writing Month, fan fiction, and fairy tales. But the quiet time to write was everyone's favorite part of each session. So, we've decided to set aside some more time for creative writing with a new weekly program starting in January.
On Thursdays at 4:00 p.m., we'll sit down “together” on Zoom and write for a half hour. While this program is intended for grades 4-8, teens who would like to attend are welcome to do so. See our event calendar for information about how to join. And to keep you going until our first session on January 7th, we'll leave you with a few writing prompt ideas.
- Imagine traveling with an alien to a planet you have never been to before. What do you notice about the new planet? Is it cold? Warm? What is the food like? Are the people friendly or are they dangerous?
- If you could become invisible, where would you go first? What would you do there?
- Imagine you live inside your favorite video game—and you have to figure out how to get back to real life.
- Invent a new sport. Describe the rules, equipment needed, and traditions surrounding games.
