Workshop 3: The Idea Jar
Karen Finneyfrock
Age Level: High School

Jack London said, “You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” In this hands-on workshop, we will create jars full of inspiration in the form of writing prompts. After brainstorming on the qualities of a good prompt, students will create a piece of text from one of the suggestions provided. Then, we will decorate jars and make enough writing prompts to fill them up. We provide the jars, you provide the ideas! RSVP Required.
