Rules of Writing

Patricia McKissack Patricia McKissack

Award winning author Patricia McKissack connected to students at Wyland Elementary today over videoconference to introduce herself and her work to them. The theme of the series is Creative Writing. She discussed different genres of writing with the students, and talked about one of her books, The Dark-Thirty (check out our post a couple down from this one to learn more about it). Pat then went over some monster rules, like the covers rule- you are safe under your covers, the monsters can’t you get then- but watch out if your arm comes out from under your covers, because a monster can grab you then and take you under the bed, never to be seen from again. She also shared that while she has never published a science fiction novel, she’s working on one now.

What will the students write about? We’ll let you know…
