Each year for Halloween, our studio becomes Creative Fright-it! as we work on spooky prompts. This year we worked on two-sentence horror stories; a deceptively simple structure that challenges you to set up seemingly-normal scenarios then twist your reader’s expectation with a spooky second sentence.
Our young authors were frightfully good at choosing their words to conjure up eerie atmospheres and chilling conclusions. Here are some of the highlights from this year!
Last week we shared five prompts from our Workshop Leaders to get kids thinking creatively about a classic teacher’s question. Here are some of the responses from our workshops, which you can use as examples to help some young writers you know! We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
