Writing Resources

In addition to the beautiful lessons we are providing, here is a list of writing resources we are loving right now.

  • Kelly Gallagher & Penny Kittle support students in writing through Covid-19: http://www.kellygallagher.org/instructional-materials

  • Storium is an online writing game platform that is perfect for entertaining while helping young writers to develop their storytelling talent: https://storium.com/

  • In following with the theme of the number 6, if you haven’t already given 6 word memoirs a try, there’s no time like the present.  This started when Hemmingway was challenged to write a story in just 6 words.  His story: For sale, baby shoes, never worn.  As they say at https://www.sixwordmemoirs.com/ : Your turn. Say it in 6.  They even have a special site devoted to teen writing! https://www.sixwordmemoirs.com/teens/ 

  • April is Camp Nanowrimo, but in the meantime the folks at Nanowrimo have put together #StayHomeWriMo with seven days worth of prompts to get you through quarantine.  https://www.nanowrimo.org/stayhomewrimo
