Reading and writing fantasy - Hive Mind alert!

In a couple of weeks I'll be giving a 45 minute workshop for mostly teen readers entitled "Reading and writing fantasy."

Oh hive mind, help me!

The key is to engage in discussion and get them talking. So what questions should I have handy to get them talking and keep them talking? It's likely I will have anywhere from 10 - 40 students in the room, aged 12 - 17 (with a few adults for good measure), and I can't count on having a chalkboard or other writing set up; are there any short group or back and forth exercises any has handy? Stuff that would get the audience engaged and or thinking?

Any and all thoughts and brainstorming welcome.
