Overview

Every so often a Young Adult novel comes along that has teenagers (and adults) rushing to bookstores. Think Twilight. Think The Fault in Our Stars. And more recently: The Hate U Give. There is something very special about teen literature. Call it passion. Call it drama. Call it truth. This hands-on workshop will address the particular demands of writing Young Adult fiction. It will cover: finding “The Idea,” creating characters that teens will relate to, writing with an authentic teen voice, dialogue, keeping it real, touching the emotions, and understanding the market.
