Amplified Classifieds


Fun Creative Writing

Classified ads are limited to a small amount of information.  Our teens “blew up” the classified ads in the paper one day by expanding the short ads into stories.  Some stories were less than one written page.  Others were a few pages long.

We only had about ten participants, but the activity was virtually free the stories were pretty creative.  Some included explaining why someone was giving away their three-year old boxer, why the school district was hiring a new janitor, and why someone was selling a jet-ski.
