Week #32

Another mistake!

Apologies for last week’s prompt! It had been the prompt in Week #13. Did anyone other than a few in Ireland and Thailand notice? I promise to try and not do that again!

Important information in this week’s newsletters!

5 Sentence Challenge

Do you have emerging writers in your class or is there a class or younger writers in your school? If so, do point them in the direction of the sister challenge to this one – 5 Sentence Challenge. As it says on the tin, writers have to create five sentences from the picture prompt. You can find it HERE

Showcase winners

The latest showcase was published on 18th May. You can see if your posts were chosen HERE. If you have a Twitter account, do let me have your ID so that you can get a tweet announcing the winners each week. HERE

Latest prompt

As you can see the prompt this week is a yummy picture! It is actually part of a sculpture called ‘The Fast Supper’ which was part of an exhibition in Gloucester Cathedral called ‘Crucible’.

Things to consider:

  • What is it made of?
  • What was the sculpture trying to say?
  • What did it make you feel? Hungry? Full?
  • What person could be eating it?
