Leap Write In

Leap Write In:

Adventures in Creative Writing to Stretch and Surprise Your One-of-a-Kind Mind

By Karen Benke

Published by Roost Books, April 2013

It can be quite hard to encourage youngsters to write creatively and finding appropriate writing prompts is nigh on impossible for this age group.  

Karen Benke has devised a workbook about creative writing designed specifically for tweens to older teenagers to use, and it is enormous fun!  The prompts range from colours, pets, emotions, bizarre body parts, places, events and feelings to discovering things about yourself you never even knew.....

I like the fact that it is designed as a workbook with space to record your own writings about the prompts, although I think I would probably buy my daughter a separate journal for recording her writings. 

This would be an ideal gift book for a youngster who already likes to write or who has expressed an interest in creative writing; it will also help encourage those who are still reluctant writers to become more adventurous and enjoy exploring writing.
