The Writing Bee Process

How it works diagram
How The Writing Bee Works

A Unique Collaborative
Writing Formula

Students write and submit what they believe is the best next part of the story before then reading the anonymous submissions of their peers and casting votes for their favorites. A winning chapter is identified, and the process continues until the story is completed!


The end result is an original story to be published containing the names of all participating students, as well as the list of students from the school or district who have qualified for The 2018 Writing Bee Finals.
