The young writers of our Wordplay Writing Club learned the stories behind constellations last week. Then they wrote some star stories of their own.
They redrew the constellations and wrote them new origin stories.
In addition to being a fun writing exercise, it also tied into our summer reading theme: A Universe of Stories.
Each month, the writers in our Wordplay Club finds different ways to boost their creativity. For example, sometimes they use randomly selected words to create a story, make nature journals or scour baby books for character names.
Our club is open to all writers in third through sixth grade. It meets at 4:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of every month at our Main Branch. The next meeting is July 10.
You can register your child for Wordplay by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.
By the way, if you’re an aspiring author, we have hundreds of books on the art of writing that you can borrow with a library card.
