Rip the Page! Adventures in Creative Writing

by Karen Benke
£12.99   paperback  Shambhala Publications Inc (2010)

Rip the Page! Adventures in Creative Writing by Karen Benke Here are the ideas, experiments, and inspiration to unfold your imagination and get your writing to flow off the page!
 
This is the everything-you-need guide to spark new poems and unstick old stories, including lists of big, small, gross-out, and favorite words; adventurous and zany prompts to leap from; dares and double dares to help you mash up truths and lies into outrageous paragraphs; and letters of encouragement written directly to you from famous authors, including: Annie Barrows, Naomi Shihab Nye, Lemony Snicket, C. M. Mayo, Elizabeth Singer Hunt, Moira Egan, Gary Soto, Lucille Clifton, Avi, Betsy Franco, Carol Edgarian, Karen Cushman, Patricia Polacco, Prartho Sereno, Lewis Buzbee, and C. B. Follett.
 
This is your journal for inward-bound adventures — use it to write, brainstorm, explore, imagine — and even rip!

"Rip the Page! inspires creativity to flow, sparkle, whoosh, and claim a child’s imagination. Karen Benke uses playful, inviting, inspiring language to form “hooks” to snag the interest and “reel in” the imagination of children to write. Great for an individual writer on their own, and wonderful as a guideline for teachers or home-school parents to inspire young hearts."
