In this section, you will find a selection of writing exercises to get your brain moving. Remember, they aren't designed to produce a finished bit of writing (although they might!). It's more about kickstarting ideas - for stories, poems, plays - which you can work on at leisure.

More exercises will be added here over time.

When you first start an exercise, it will ask you for an email - yours, if you have one, or a parent/guardian, so ask their permission. This email isn't stored by the website, and isn't used for anything other than sending your writing. Enjoy!

You can now email yourself your answers! Simply fill in your email AFTER you've completed your exercise.


You'll need to enter your email ON THE ACTUAL EXERCISE PAGE to get your results. For privacy reasons, they don't come to me, and I also don't grab your email from that, so relax and write whatever you want!




The newsletter will allow me to send you occasional updates about the site, including new exercises or features.

Please note: Currently, the newsletter is SEPARATE from emailing yourself your results. You will need to do that separately before any exercise. (After completing this form, you will be returned to the home page).
