The Power of Writing to Heal – stories from teens

A writing project at Scriber Lake High School in Edmonds, Washington shows the power of writing and telling our stories to heal.  Check out this article for a video interview of a few of the teens.  The teens with the help of their teacher and an author/mentor published their book We are Absolutely Not Okay and also started a website.

In addition, check out a story blog called Writers on the Inside written by youth offenders at a Juvenile Detention Center in the South.

In Somerville, Massachusetts, urban teens are also publishing their own books with a fantastic organization called Books for Hope.
