Jumper Cables for the Imagination
There once was a story in a tabloid newspaper about a quick-thinking mechanic who revived a heart attack victim using jumper cables. If it works for the heart, certainly, it must work for the imagination, particularly for that of a stifled writer. Even the wildest, most untamed imagination needs a jolt to get it running once in a while. In this workshop, participants will be hooked up to a number of playful, mind zapping activities which will get those proverbial creative writing juices bubbling in a non-threatening, judgement-free environment.
Activities may include:
- Headless Chicken Writing.
- Ten endings in Search of a Beginning.
- What in the World was that Sound?
- The Perilous Treasure Hunt.
- A Room Full of Five or Six Senses.
These activities are immediately applicable for use in any classroom from grades four to twelve and beyond.
