Student Spotlight: Comics

Dear Julie,

My kids and their dear friends have really enjoyed writing their own comics using the Comic Life application. I started this project using one of your free write ideas – write a list of opposites. Then I had them use your funneling technique to narrow down the topic. Then I asked them to come up with three exchanges for their characters.

I also introduced the writer’s compass to the kids to make sure that their stories had a true north, that each character had a unique voice, and that their stories ended with a flourish!

Thank you for helping writing to be fun and creative, motivating my kids to write!

Sincerely,
Karyn
