PIZZAZ!: Creative Writing and Storytelling Ideas

PIZZAZ offers creative writing and storytelling activities for all ages. It is divided into three categories: Poetry, Fiction, and Bag of Tricks. Each entry provides a description, a warm up activity, instructions, examples, templates (if appropriate), and printable handouts. The Poetry section offers the usual types of poems -- Cinquain, Haiku, and Limericks and unique ones like Sausage and Twist poems. Fiction offers basket and chain stories, stories created from magazine pictures, and even Mad-Lib-style stories. Finally, Bag of Tricks offers games and tongue twisters. Although the site is set up for teachers, students could use the instructions to help with assignments or just to have creative fun.
