About the Book

An experiential writing quest for teens inviting them to write a “book of themselves” right now in their life, creating an inner oasis for their own private thoughts and words.

Many teens want to keep a diary or journal but aren’t sure what to write about or where to start. Oasis Pages: Teen Writing Quest provides the road map for a personal writing habit, drawing inspiration from the four Writing Super Powers, Daily Templates, Writing Jump-Starters, and thought-provoking tips and notes throughout. All they need to do is show up and write.

At the end, they’ll have a book of their life — and the skills to keep on writing!

Created by a writer and educator with moms, aunts, grandmothers (and dads and uncles!), teachers, therapists, and anyone with teens in their life in mind, The Oasis Pages: Teen Writing Quest makes a great gift for teens who write and those who might want to.
