Special Writing Project – Week#1

Welcome to the Special Writing Project!

This is the first of a series of prompts for 100 Word Challenge over the months of July and August 2016. Most schools in the UK and elsewhere are on their big holiday break but for the next 8 weeks, the Speical Writing Project will be here available for those of you who are in the midst of winter and not on holiday!

How to take part

If you would like to take part in the SWP, do complete this short form so that you get the weekly newsletter and can be put in touch with other schools taking part and guarantee some comments.


The showcase for Week#24 can be found HERE

Setting the prompt

As this is a special writing project across July and August, do send me some suggestions for prompts that you would like to share with other writers. It will save me having to think!
