Threading the Exquisite Corpse

This is an example of an ongoing story project called The Exquisite Corpse Adventure, in which a new author (John Scieszka started the whole thing and it has been picked by such writers as Susan Cooper, Kate DiCamillo, and Gregory Maguire) is writing a new chapter to a strange story every two weeks for an entire year.
We’ve been using the evolving story for writing inspiration — my students continue each chapter forward as informal writing prompts — and this week, following a chapter that features a baby on roller skates, Albert Einstein and a talking pig (among other things), we used a Voicethread to podcast some of the stories that follow the end of Episode Five. This was a voluntary endeavor, so they got to choose whether or not to share what they had written.

Peace (in the thread),
