Resources For Teachers


Part of the Kenyon Review’s mission is to teach creative writing and thoughtful reading to audiences of all ages. The resources below are designed to help teachers and students engage deeply with contemporary literature and create their own literary masterpieces.

COVID-19 Update: Although we have cancelled spring outreach writing workshops for elementary and middle school students in our community, the Kenyon Review remains committed to supporting students who are eager to read, write, and create. Check back each week for new writing prompts designed to nurture your creativity and imagination wherever you are writing from!
