Creative Writing For Kids



During the month of October the Youth Services Department of the library will be having a writing contest for kids. In preparation for this, I thought it might be helpful to make everyone aware of different resources available to help children in their creative writing adventure. Because our contest already has a theme, it may not take as much prodding to get those creative juices flowing, but just in case, this web site may be helpful: http://www.sheldonoberman.com/songpoem.htm. This site is an exercise in language development, however, the main purpose is for the child to have fun while stretching her vocabulary. A book that might come in handy is called, You Can Write A Story! And another is called, Career Ideas For Kids Who Like Writing.
It's never too early to foster the love of reading and writing! Stay tuned for detailed information about the contest.
