Giving Thanks

What makes you grateful? Who deserves a great big “thank you”? We’re focused on the theme of thankfulness, and we’d be so appreciative if you’d share your thoughts in the comments.


Have we met?

This week we are thinking about the theme “first impressions.” Comment here with your first thoughts on first impressions! Remember, first thoughts are powerful.


Our Halloween writing event was a success. Thank you to all who planned and participated. We enjoyed a chilling reading by several student authors.

If you would like to publish the story or poem you read at that event, please add it here as a comment to this post, so we can enjoy a second helping…

If you’d like to write along with us, consider this prompt: Write about the masks people wear. (Post your response!)

“Get Away” with Writing

We had several intriguing responses to last week’s prompt. Our second prompt will remain open to submissions for two weeks (instead of one). We can’t wait to see what you create in response to this:

Write about one who desires to escape.

Introducing the Weekly Prompt

Each Monday, Sunlake Review will post a new writing prompt and invite all students (and teachers?) to submit an original piece of writing that resulted from the prompt. This can be fiction or nonfiction, poetry or prose. Interpret the prompt however you will. Post your submission as a comment, and it will be reviewed by the editorial club. We will feature our favorite the following week as well as a new prompt.
Please include your name, email, and grade in your response. You may instead bring a hard copy of your submission to 4-139 if you prefer.

This week’s prompt is simple. Write about the fall.

Please submit your response by Monday, October 10th at 2:00 PM.

No Meeting Monday 10/3/16, BUT…

The club meeting for Monday Oct. 3 has been cancelled. However, please check back on the website that day and every Monday for a weekly writing opportunity. Starting Monday, Oct. 3, we will post a writing prompt and invite submissions responding to the prompt throughout the week. We will select our favorite(s) and post them on the site each Monday along with the new prompt for that week.

Check back Monday after school!

First Meeting

Welcome back! The Sunlake Review will have our first meeting for this year on Monday, September 12th after school in room 4-139. All who are interested are welcome to attend. We’ll continue to meet every Monday after school as we plan fun writing events and work towards publishing our eighth issue of the literary journal for Sunlake High School.
