This is a nifty site that aims to help writers hone their craft. Every Monday and Thursday, the editors "create blog posts that contain 10 random words or phrases.In the comment section, you create and submit a cohesive, creative short story tying all the words together."
All the submitted writings, including comments from readers, are posted for the world to see.
This could yield a good deal of stimulation for young writers, middle school and up. They can submit their writings (with real or psuedonyms) for comment, comment on already submittied writing, practice offline, and develop their own online versions of this exercise. Teachers can use the already submitted stories as examples of good, bad, and in-between writing for students to analyze and critique.
All in all, Creative Copy Challenge seems like a refreshing change of pace for practicing/learning how to write better. -JL
