The Creativity Club is for you!

How does it work?

  • Sign up for our monthly dragonfly e-newsletter
  • Every month we’ll have a new Creativity Club prompt to inspire you or complete the quick-fire challenge.
  • Submit your creative work using the online form on our Submissions Page.
  • Check back to see if your work has been featured on our website or social media.

If you aren’t interested in this month’s prompt – no problem! We accept all kinds of creative work. You can always send us the following:

  • a review of a book you have read
  • a story you have written (even if it’s just the beginning!)
  • a comic you have created
  • your own artwork
  • a poem you have written
  • anything that shows your creativity!

November Creativity Club Prompt &
Quick Fire Challenge

1. What colour do you feel like today? Write a paragraph or poem describing how you feel. Do you think we can guess what colour you are? Don’t let us know the colour until the very end. Feel free to create a collage to illustrate your “colour feeling.”

2. Imagine you could live inside one of your favourite stories. Describe what you would do. How would it change the story? You can use words or illustrations to share your newly imagined story.

3. Think about an object you have seen on the sidewalk or the side of the road. (You may need to go for a walk to find something.) Tell us the story of the object. What is it doing there? Did someone lose it or leave it there on purpose? What will happen to the object now? You can also create a comic strip to show us the story of the object.
