Creative Writing Games: Fun Fiction

These three creative writing quickies have stimulated some of the most fun times I have ever had with my pupils! Each takes about 20- 25 minutes to write; the sharing time afterwards will vary according to class size. Each of the activities will provoke both the imagination AND critical thinking. The “show, not tell” activity reinforces that all important characteristic of successful narrative that eludes so many writers. The first activity is in the form of a printable for pupils, whereas the other two need to be related to them orally to maintain their intriguing secrets.

There are games for individuals, team games, mini writing activities, silly speeches and riddles to solve. If you and your students enjoy these freebie frolics, it would be wonderful if you could write a quick review.
