Congratulations to Young Writers Inspired by "Exquisite Corpse Adventure" Authors and Illustrators

Winners of The Exquisite Prompt Redux Writing Challenge Announced

This past fall Reading Rockets challenged students across America to exercise their imaginations by writing the end to a cliffhanger, the review of a magical object, a poem in the voice of a Whinoceros, or the adventure of two time travelers...writing challenges inspired by the authors and illustrators who collaborated to create the progressive story game The Exquisite Corpse Adventure.

The creative efforts of several winners were recently selected by Reading Rockets from hundreds of entries. The NCBLA congratulates the creative efforts of  these young people and invites you to read these fabulous winning selections on!

What Is The Exquisite Corpse Adventure?
The Exquisite Corpse Adventure is a progressive story game originally published on the Library of Congress' website as the foundation of a national reading and writing initiative, created by The National Children's Book and Literacy Alliance and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress.
