As eleventh and twelfth graders continue to study the more complex aspects of writing, it's important to remember to work on creativity and imagination as well. The Writing Prompts Workbook is a collection of imaginative situations and questions that will get your students and children to come up with wildly creative ideas to give their brains a break from their more formal writing assignments. Bryan Cohen, the author of 1,000 Creative Writing Prompts and 500 Writing Prompts for Kids has compiled 200 of some of his best prompts for eleventh and twelfth graders in this workbook. Use them for journals, assignments, poems, conversations, songs and more!

Examples from the book:

14. In a horrible injustice, your parents have blamed you for stealing a cookie from the cookie jar, but it wasn't you. Determine who the actual culprit was and write an essay to prove how he or she did it.

71. What is your earliest childhood memory? What do you think was going on that you don't quite remember? Would you have changed this memory if you could?

188. Create a journal entry about your day from the point of view of you, five years in the past. How would the past version of you look differently at your actions and circumstances than you do currently?

Welcome to The Writing Prompts Workbook! Within these pages you'll find 200 writing prompts, two on each page, that will help to stimulate the imagination of your students or children. I've found that the key to allowing students to fully latch onto an idea is to give them a scenario followed by a question. In answering the question, young writers can take the same prompt a million different directions. You may even want to try photocopying a page and have your writers take on the same prompt at the beginning and the end of a school year just to see how different their storytelling has become. 

The Writing Prompts Workbook series is a collection of books I've created after seeing how many parents and teachers have visited my website, Build Creative Writing Ideas (located at I have adapted my thousands of prompts into six workbooks designed to take a first grader creatively all the way up through the end of high school. The six books are available for grades 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10 and 11-12. The prompts become more complex with each volume, but continue to remain imaginative and creative throughout. 

You can download a printable PDF of the book toward the end of the collection. This gives you the choice of either reading the prompt out loud or letting your students/children read the prompts on a sheet of paper.

I love hearing about the progress of students on my site and I'm always interested in hearing new ideas for delivering creative writing prompts to writers from the ages of five to 105. Feel free to contact me on my website for any questions and comments you can think of. I hope you and your future best-selling authors thoroughly enjoy this and future books in the series. Happy writing!
