AlanPeatGhostStoriesAppOne of a series of three fantastic writing apps, created by Alan Peat and his team, “Writing Gruesome Ghost Stories” for iPad is the perfect support to get pupils writing for fun, utilising their macabre interest in all things scary!

Built for the iPad, the app allows pupils to work on their own, or as part of a group in structuring their story, exploring the key elements required: characters, settings and dilemmas; as well as providing a great choice of plot skeletons (story starting ideas) which can spark the imaginations of those who need a nudge!

The featured filled app also includes an ‘ever-expanding ghostly glossary’, providing terms and definitions to help the writing process go even further.

For those teachers who wish to pick the brains of Alan Peat, the password protected Teacher section provides ideas, scripts and inspiration to help fire up even the most reluctant writers in your class.

The Alan Peat Guide to Writing Gruesome Ghost Stories for iPad is currently priced at £1.49*, available on the Apple App Store (Click the icon below, or in the review box above).
