I think if you include a simple and quick craft for students to make and attach to their writing prompt, they'll get more excited.
As you can see by the photo, there are 2 ways

bulletin board, or look sweet hanging back-to-back from the ceiling.
The packet also includes a sample, plus blank border. Encourage older students to type their final draft.
