See how StoryWriter can be used in your classroom to create published stories!Start The Tour
Start by selecting the story's first chapter from BoomWriter's collection of Story Starts (or write your own!).
Update the settings for the number of chapters, word count & deadlines, then add any Guidance Notes.Tip: Your Guidance Notes can have students focus on a specific area, concept, or literary element that you’d like them to apply in their writing.
Students read Chapter 1, as well as any Guidance Notes, before then writing their proposed individual entry for Chapter 2.
Students submit their entries to you, where you can either approve or request revisions.Tip: You can extend the deadline or end the writing phase at anytime.
Students vote for the best next chapter after reading up to 4 anonymous submissions at a time. Our process provides a fair and easily managed voting system.
The winning submission becomes the story’s Chapter 2, and the students are then ready to write Chapter 3.Tip: At the end of each chapter - conduct a class review of the winning submission.
Repeat this process for the remaining chapters, and when finished you'll have a completed story that you and the class can purchase as a real paperback book!
See, we said it was easy!
