Happy Vermont Writes Day!

Submitted by admin on Fri, 02/20/2015 - 11:13

You're invited to participate in this year's Vermont Writes Day!

We're striving to have writing flow in from all corners of Vermont--every county, town, villiage, and school. We'll be collecting all of that writing here, and publishing some snippets in various media partners around Vermont.

We invite you to respond to any of the following prompts:

2065: It’s the year 2065. Describe the coolest invention of the day. Tell a story about how you use it.

Animal: You’ve been granted a wish to be transformed into an animal for 24 hours. What animal would you be? Why? Tell a story of what happens.

Photo: Write from the perspective of anyone, or anything, in the photo below.

School: What do you wish your school would do or provide that it doesn’t do/provide now?

Six: Write as many six-word stories as you can.

Staircase: It’s midnight. You can’t sleep. You open the door to your bedroom and there, in the hall, is a fantastic staircase that you've never seen before. What do you do? What happens?

Free Write: Write about anything! Tell a story!
