This activity helps to introduce the writing process. The activity can be done in a group or individual. Famous writers including poets, novelists, rap and country artists, children's authors, and more people from various backgrounds come to light in this activity. The student researcher will identify for each picture why writing was important to the person and the challenges in their writing careers. The lesson of this activity is not everyone is a perfect writer the first, second, or even the third time and that these specific writers persisted and became successful in the writing world. Thus, writing is a continuous process and may take more than one try (for school, publishing, and/or any other recognition) to be successful. Students can report out their findings to the class once the research is done. Need internet access for research.
