Making Writing Fun

Summer Writing Challenge!

Are you interested having your student write during the summer, but are looking for something low-key and that’s flexible? Join me for my Summer Writing Challenge! We start June 18th!

Each year I offer a free writing challenge that’s open to all students. The goal is to GET STUDENTS WRITING during the summer months.

Our theme this summer is Dinosaurs, and we’ll be practicing different types of writing for this 8-week challenge. Each week, I’ll post a new writing prompt for you to write about. We’ll be doing all different types of writing each week, so you’ll be able to practice and explore different types of writing. We will be writing essays, poems, letters, and stories, and more!

Then, at the end of the summer, you will choose your FAVORITE piece that you’ve written, edit it, and submit it for the final writing competition. There, your writing will be evaluated by a panel of judges and ONE lucky winner will win a very special gift card. Final date to submit your writing is August 17th and a winner will be chosen August 20th!
