Rip All The Pages!: 52 tear-out adventures for creative writers
This is the activity book for out-of-bounds creative writing fun. Full of zany, silly, and thoughtful prompts, this book will help you take your writing to new places, literally! Write a wish and fold it up into a paper crane; write a secret poem, then place it somewhere for a stranger to find; write your hopes and dreams, and then send them soaring as a paper airplane--there's no end to the imaginative ways to use words and paper. Unleash your creativity!
KAREN BENKE has inspired children--and even a few adults--in the art of creative writing for over twenty years as a Poet in the Schools, writing coach, and visiting author. She specializes in leading on-the-spot creative writing workshops and has been known to get even the most reluctant writer to reach for a pen. Her poetry has appeared in many anthologies and national literary journals (Ploughshares, Rattle, Hawaii Pacific Review, Poetry Daily) and her books have been featured in FamilyFun magazine, the San Francisco Book Review, Kids' Book Review (Australia), and elsewhere. The recipient of two teaching grants from Poets & Writers and residencies from Djerassi Resident Artists Program and Hedgebrook, she runs The Writers Nest and lives north of the Golden Gate Bridge with her teenage son, magic cat Clive, and rescue dog Rasco Roon.
