Challenge and Inspire Gifted and Talented Writers

There are just a few days to join in the new cycle of the Southeast Review’s 30-Day Young Writer’s Regimen, which will launch on April 2, 2012.

Whether your student is a creative writer or not, this is a great way to motivate gifted and talented children to get excited about writing and literature as well as provide practice in free-writing, revision, peer-review, and structure.

This regimen is a valuable tool for teachers in the classroom as well as parents in home school settings. Here are some of the activities and highlights included:

  • daily writing exercises to kick-start the imagination;
  • quotes from famous authors to generate discussion in classrooms;
  • examples of different prose style and how to mimic these; and
  • craft talks from various award-winning picture book, middle-grade, YA and adult writers.

By participating in the young writer’s regimen, the hope is that students will cultivate their creative and critical thinking skills (even if they are reluctant writers) and produce brilliant poetry and prose. Regardless of whether or not your student wants to write the next great American novel, take a look into the SER’s Young Writer’s Regimen which makes creativity and imagination top priorities.
