Part journal, part inspiration, this book encourages teens to be creative by providing writing prompts in the form of questions and photographs. For individual purposes there is plenty of space to write on the pages. In the context of teacher use in a classroom or a librarian’s use in a creative-writing club, the book will be very handy for starting discussions and writing sessions. Some of the prompts are personal, such as “Where do you want to travel?” or “What superpower do you wish you had?” Others feed off a photographic image, and ask the writer to describe what the person in the photo is thinking or how the character that is described would act in a certain situation. This collection of prompts would be appreciated by aspiring writers.
Summary: Part journal, part inspiration, this book encourages teens to be creative by providing writing photographs and prompts in the form of questions.
