Author-Inspired Writing Prompts
Whether you’re back in the classroom, teaching virtually, or something in between, here are some ideas to get students in the “write” mood. Take advantage of the voices of published authors and illustrators in these original source selections, designed to guide every writer through the creative process.
Determine Character Voice
Every story has characters whose voices we may remember long after we’ve closed the book. Finding those character voices and writing them authentically is an essential part of the writing process. Listen to these authors discuss how they found their characters’ voices and consider how you might find your own.
