Wreck This Journal is a creative, fun, and highly interactive way to step outside the box and throw yourself into the world of lived art. . .the opposite of traditional journaling.

Integrating subversive (and often destructive) actions-"fling coffee here" and "collect fruit stickers here," along with writing and drawing prompts like "document a boring event in detail" or "Sleep with the journal. Describe the experience here," this unique book will free readers of the compulsion to write neatly, keep the binding intact, and progress chronologically. Great for creative types itching for some sanctioned destruction, or for "Type As" who want to loosen up a bit!

Growing up brings with it a lot of feelings and a lot of things to think about and ponder over. Introspective writing can be not only one of the best ways to channel creative-writing energy, but also to take a step back and process all of those emotions. Leap Write In! is a series of fascinating, out-of-the-box, meandering prompts for stories, lists, memories, and more. The teal blue and black print, fun fonts, and mix of straight, undulating, and chevron-shaped lines to write on creates a fun atmosphere that encourages writers to let go and just write!

Prompts include ideas like:
"What do you carry in your pocket, backpack, head, heart?"
"Track where your mind wanders during class, and see if you can turn your wonderings into a daydream-type story with wild and whirling words. Begin with the last thing your teacher said."
"Be a reporter with your eyes and ears.Bear witness to the next three people you see. In one short sketch, describe each one. Nothing more."

Featuring a number of creative exercises and things to think about, this book features a wide range of inspirational ideas that are sure to get your introspective teenagers thinking and writing. A variety of poems and example works are also included. 282 pages, softcover. High School.

In this delightful volume of linguistic revelry, you can horse around with the animal metaphors that make poetry of everyday speech - as well as with the wheezy cliches that are all too conspicuous in our daily prose. Romp with the rhythms and rhymes of "Inky Pinky," and see if you can "Name that Bunch" - a prickle of porcupines? a rash of dermatologists? But beware: you can lose points for laughing in "Fictionary."
