Back To School Writing Prompts

On the first Monday of every month, I create a few writing prompts to help you get writing! You’ll see them here each month and on Instagram @thelexiconwritingblog every Monday.

Happy September! There are four Monday’s in September which means…four writing prompts! School is back in season, there are new pencils and notebooks being used all over the world, and inspiration is at its peak. Get writing this month and enjoy!

Here we go!

  1. Write the story of a child’s first day at Kindergarten from three different POVs: the child’s, the mother’s, and the teachers.
  2. *Challenge Prompt* Write a story of two friends meeting for the first time. Convey emotion and heart and reflection. Don’t use dialogue tags.
  3. Write a list of your least favorite and most favorite parts of school. Then write a story featuring a character whose favorites are your least favorites and whose least favorites are your favorites.
  4. Write a story including the words “backpack”, “Debate Team”, and “cafeteria”.

I hope inspiration finds you wherever you are. 🙂
