Friends, I have some exciting news to share! I’ve teamed up with Kill Your Darlings to produce an online workshop, Introduction to Writing Young Adult Fiction.
Introduction to Writing Young Adult Fiction is a workshop designed to equip aspiring YA writers with the skills and support to hone their craft and get to work.
As a published YA author with a creative writing PhD and an insatiable YA reading habit, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share my knowledge about the craft of writing YA fiction.
The workshop helps writers develop an appropriate mindset for writing YA fiction by exploring what makes a story ‘YA’, what responsibilities must be considered when writing for teen readers, elements of craft and, importantly, how to connect with the wider YA community.
Through practical exercises and insights into the creative practice of developing a YA narrative, the workshop teaches writers how to create compelling narrative voices, dynamic characters and engaging plots, and provides them with resources to assist at all stages of the writing process.
