Creative Writing Competition

Twisted Tales Video

A fantastic way to explore character perspectives through creative writing...

How much does a story change if we change the point of view? Twisted Tales:A New Point Of View is a fantastic opportunity to flip the script and explore another side of the story.

Will your child choose to give a supporting character a starring role, or will they flip the whole story on its head, turning a happy ever after into tragedy, or horror into romance? It's a great resource for home educators as well as young adults who just love to write!

Use the video to engage your child, then there is the planning sheet to help structure their story and even lots of optional writing activities to help get their creativity flowing.
