Prompts Galore!

One of the highlights of my Creative Writing class (for me, and hopefully, for the students, as well) is our daily writing exercise, at the beginning of class. I use the "What If" book to give them a creative prompt, and the students write on it for about 20 minutes, then share (if they wish).

Well, here are some wonderful sites I wanted to pass along, that contain lots and lots of creative writing prompts:

Creative Writing Prompts

Creative Writing Assignments that Work

10 Creative Writing Activities

(These are for elementary students, but I think some of them are quite thought-provoking): Journal Topics

So, when you're feeling stuck or unmotivated, you might skim these and see if they help "prompt" your creative juices to flow!


  1. Thanks for the links. I've wanted to try some new creative writing activites. Think these sites will get some attention this week. :)

  2. Love those creative writing prompts! The possibilities are endless.
