SOS Sagas: Trapped Video

Get Your 11-18 Year-Olds Re-engaged with Creative Writing!

Get your young writer gripped with creative writing as they write their own thrilling mini saga, a story told in just 100 words.

Your young writer will be excited to write as they enjoy taking part in the trapped quiz on the back of their entry form, before choosing a story starter or creating their own! Your young writer can interpret the story starters as they wish to, before choosing one and using any time period or narrative techniques they’d like.

There’s a fantastic video that introduces your young writer to the activity in just 1 minute! It’s guaranteed to create excitement, banishing boredom and lets you enjoy seeing your child engaged!
