Imagine you and your crew have braved a turbulent sea only to, at last, crash on the shores of a tropical island.
But it is no haven! As you and your gang of intrepid survivors make your way inland, it is only to discover that the isle is infested with one particular creature . . .
Such was the writing prompt I delivered yesterday at our creative writing camp on the theme of safari, which I’m teaching Yangpyeong, Korea, with fellow authors Kallie George and Dan Bar-el.
To help the students visualize this activity, I had them pick a creature from a sack and then make a map of the island. Then it was up to them to write the story and see if their characters could survive the island!
Here are a few photos of their maps . . . deadly AND spectacular!
