In this thread, members discussed the use of Journals, which is a form of creative writing sometimes used at the end of OTHER workshops, rather than, in a Creative Writing Workshop.
We began WoRM in January 2001 and it was a HUGE hit!
At first, we tried to use "Prayer Journals," but they only got used about 50% of the time. We have age group "shepherds" who were supposed to use the last 10 min. of workshop time to guide the kids in writing in their journal. Because of the lesson sometimes running over, the discussion not getting to the point of actually writing, etc., they often don't use the prepared journal papers which = wasted paper.
My question is about how you construct your journals.
