The Rock Thoughts Writing Project is transforming boring old stones and turning them into fodder for the imagination. The project, founded by Karla Valenti, is super simple: those interested take a rock a paint a monster face on it.
After that, the Rock Thoughts Writing Project assigns the stone a code and it's left in a public place for a kid to find. When the stone is discovered, the kid who found it is encouraged to write a story about their newfound friend and submit the story to the website. The process is repeated after the story has been submitted.
The Rock Thoughts Writing Project is a unique project that hopes to foster creativity and a love of language in children. As Valenti describes it, the project is also about connecting with others.
