Young Authors

Every child will need a flash/usb drive so they can work on their writing both at home and at school.  Flash drives are inexpensive and can be found at Wal-Mart, Staples, etc.  If you can not purchase one for any reason, please let me know and I will do what I can to help.  

Please remember these few guidelines:

  • Students are encouraged to take an idea from their writing journal or from a writing prompt and to expand on that for publishing.  

· No guns or violence of any kind in your story

· No fantasy stories (aliens, outer space, etc.)

· Limit the amount of dialogue in your story

· Try not to have too many characters in your story.  It makes the story difficult to follow.

· No stories based on movies, T.V. or videogames.

· If you are having trouble deciding on a topic, see your teacher.  I would be happy to offer suggestions.
