Spring 2013 Teen Writers Day Out

On Thursday, April 18, 2013, National Writing Project teachers brought teen writers from Boyd County High School, Fleming County High School, and Rowan County High School to the campus of Morehead State University in Kentucky for a writing marathon.


  1. We began the day with #6words memoirs

  2. Students were challenged to share their #6words on Twitter, with Smith Magazine, on our Graffiti Wall (see photos below) and with each other
  3. Then we wrote Flash Fiction

  4. Students were challenged to write 100 word stories in just 10 minutes and they delivered some truly awesome work with more than one reading sending chills through the audience and others generating laughter, whoops of joy, and spontaneous applause.
