Letter Writing Exercises

The Unusual Chickens books are a kind of book called an “epistolary novel” — books written in letters or as diary entries. If you or your class or book group would like to explore telling a story in this way, here are a few writing exercises to try by me and the authors of some other wonderful epistolary novels!
