Opening Lines & Hooks: Creative Writing Activities_11 to 14 yrs

  • Grab the reader’s attention from the very first line and hold onto it.
  • Review the first lines of relevant, famous novels and develop their own style.
  • Write to inform and entertain. And be ruthless about the editing process.
