A Farewell to Creative Writing

Students,

I’ve truly enjoyed getting to know you through your writing this semester. You have proven to be a talented, eclectic bunch!

Before you leave, there are two more tasks for you to complete:

  1. Create your final post for this class. Select one of the two following options:
    *Let your readers know this will be your last post on this blog as the class is ending. Add any other ‘flair’ to the post that you’d like and thank them for their feedback.
    OR
    *Let your readers know that while this is your last post for the class, you plan to continue posting on this blog. You might let them know what to expect from you in the future. Add any other ‘flair’ to the post that you’d like.
  2. Read our literary journal, Et cetera, and post an encouraging comment on at least ten of your peers’ blogs.

I hope you all continue writing your entire life. It can be an invaluable asset!

Blog Post #5 (free choice!)

Hi folks!

Today is a day to work on your blogs as well as read your peers’ blogs and post comments.

Remember that you have to post on your blog at least once a week for credit. Be sure to publish something by midnight Sunday.

IMPORTANT: since you have a full week to post something on your blog, blog posts cannot be completed as late work after the due date. Be sure to plan accordingly.

This week’s theme is free choice. Consider typing one of your writer’s notebook entries and sharing what the prompt was. You do not have to include an image this week (although it’s always encouraged).

Have fun and use your time wisely. Once you post something, you should read and comment on your peers’ work.

  • Post your creative essay on your blog (Due Sunday by midnight)

Whatever you don’t finish is due by midnight Sunday tonight. I look forward to reading them!
