Think of an interesting topic (perhaps based on a theme being studied at this time) and write it up on the board. Give the students a given amount of time (depending on age and level) and have them write the first part of a story. It is important to tell them not to write a complete story but only start it, with details, characters and storyline
After this time period is up, exchange papers so that each student gets the essay of another. The students then have to read the story they have and write the other half of the story that they receive.
Later, the stories can be read to the class. This activity means that what everyone writes is important because someone else has to base their writing on the first part of a story that is not their own, while their own original creation is being worked on by someone else.
