The Unusual Chickens books area 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!

Write a Letter Explaining Your Most Favorite Food or Meal

We hope you enjoy finding new ways to tell your stories!
