Writing your own quiz

Writing your own quiz

may seem like quite a task if you are new to this, so here’s a few tips to help you write a great quiz.

TV; Newspapers; Magazines etc. are great resources to help you write your own quiz. Let me explain.


You may be watching something on TV, it may be the news or a sporting event. You will see stories about some famous personality that has passed away. Or if it is a sports program, you may catch a world record being broken. These are all material for great quiz questions. Having a pencil and some notepaper handy whilst you are watching TV means you can jot down some details to help you write a question later.


The same thing applies to newspapers. Have  your pencil and note-pad ready. Read your newspaper with quiz questions in mind. A daily newspaper can easily give you enough material for twenty questions or more.


Magazines are one of my favourite tools as they often have interviews with celebrities. One of these interviews can produce several questions, such as ‘Who is **** married to?’, or How many children does *** have?’, ‘What are their names?’ You’ll be surprised how many questions you can get from just one copy of a magazine. Imagine having a stack of magazines!

Another easy way to gather questions is using Photos and Local newspapers.

If you are writing for a local pub quiz, a picture/local quiz, can be a popular feature especially if you are trying to build up a good following. People like local questions.


Almost everyone nowadays has a digital camera or a camera built into their phone. So the next time you are walking around town, be sure to have your cameras ready! A great subject could be, ‘Above the Shop Windows’. Take photos of buildings, especially old buildings, concentrating on the part of the building that you don’t normally look at. You’ll find lots of interesting information up there such as dates carved into the stonework and even the name of the business the building was originally built for.

Local Newspapers:

Local newspapers can yield many questions for your ‘Local Theme’. Don’t just stick to ‘Current’ stories, visit your local ‘Archives’ or library to find historical facts which can be used for questions. Browsing through old newspapers at these facilities can be very entertaining as well.

The Internet:

I hope you have enjoyed this article and it has helped you to write a fantastic quiz.

But just before I close I have to mention the Internet. I use the Internet on a daily basis, not only for my work with my quiz sites. You can research almost every topic under the sun online. It’s a great resource for anyone looking for quick information. Just one word of warning, when using the Internet for researching questions for a quiz, check the facts with several sources to ensure your questions are accurate.

And with that I will bid you ‘Happy Quizzing’

Look out for more articles on this website soon.
