More gifts for writers

Hilarey here...

I taught a high school writing class once and it was difficult to coax some of the teenagers to share what they were working on.

Gifts helped. One thing I came up with was a honey stick that had a simple address label attached. On the label I printed Proverbs 16:24 "Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones."

Can anyone else submit a quick, inexpensive idea for a writing class incentive?

Chocolate is a great motivator! :D

When I was doing a writing class at my school, I offered badges for those who completed that week's assignment. They were simply squares of paper I had printed a "badge" on and they were to glue them to the inside of their notebook.
Those who collected all the badges by the end of the course, won a "writerly" prize.

Great idea, Jackie!
