Write On! Writing Prompts
The Times-News invites young people in grades K-8 to submit stories for publication in the newspaper. Write On! is a full page of stories by students published every Friday. The following list of upcoming writing prompts will help you plan to participate. Due to space limitations, not all entries received can be printed.

Write On! info will return soon

Write On Guidelines:
1. Keep the length of your story to 100 words or less. Please double space if typed or skip a line if handwritten. 2. Use correct grammar, punctuation, spelling and capitalization. 3. Follow directions for the writing topic. Creativity is welcome--but please address the topic. 4. Make sure your entry is legible. 5. Your first and last name (or last initial), school and grade should be included with your entry. 6. Your entry must meet the deadline to be considered for publication. ** Teachers - submit only the best four or five entries from your class, not an entire class set.
