Word Tamer

By Judy Waite
This site is looking for storytellers who want to make stars of their stories. Wordtamer is a website where you tame words and train stories.

Explore the fun fair. When you roll over the signs, they will glitter as you glide past. Choose one, click on it, and let it take you to your first challenge. Play around with ideas. Get inspiration about plot, characters, themes as you write your stories.

Capture fresh new writing possibilities. All your ideas can be saved, printed & developed off-line.

Join the new generation of story tellers.

"It has been a real boost to have a blog that parents and students can go to and see not only the finished product, but the planning and putting everything together that the kids do. My eCoach has helped me so much by providing a space to show the process AND to share resources. (I can't keep track of my bookmarks, so if it's something I think is really good, I put it in 'Resources' on the team page. Now I can find it!) Take a bow!"
