Over the next several months, we’ll be doing something a little different with the Writers' Block. In order to promote “The Exquisite Prompt,” a cool new writing challenge from Reading Rockets and AdLit.org, we’ll be featuring a new story starter every few weeks. The story starters will come from really great authors like Kate DiCamillo, Steven Kellogg, and Linda Sue Park.
Use ideas inspired by these authors to generate some great writing here on RIF’s Reading Planet. Other kids can add to your story, just like always. This time, though, you can finish your writing on your own computer and e-mail or mail it to Reading Rockets, 2775 S. Quincy St., Arlington, VA 22206 in order to be eligible for great prizes. (Only send in your own original work.) We’ll be featuring the prompts for Level II (grades 3-5) on the Reading Planet but there are prompts for starting stories for grades K-12 on Reading Rockets’ site.
