Let’s Get Creative!

Looking for some creative writing prompts for your class? I have been frequenting this lovely website every time I am in need of a unique and “out of the box” topic! There are over 300 prompts to choose from ranging from serious to poetic to silly.

Some that I particularly like include:

  • Write a fictional scary encounter with your hairdresser/ barber.
  • Write from the point of view of a stack of paper a few inches from a shredder.
  • Weave a story around this mixed proverb: “Silence is a great healer.”
  • Choose a poem that you like. Take the last line and use that as the first line of your own poem.
  • It was Herman Melville who said, “We become sad in the first place because we have nothing stirring to do.” Write about what stirs you.
  • Write in the voice of a “rope about to snap”.

It is always refreshing to do a little creative writing after a long day of intense vocabulary and grammar!

Happy writing,
