Young Adult Fiction Writing Workshop
This terrific new workshop is designed for writers of all experience levels who are interested in writing young adult fiction but have yet to fully embark on a project. The YA genre will be examined and demystified, and the instructor will discuss–among other topics–what makes a book YA, and address fears about what is, and isn’t, allowed in the genre.  Students will do in-class writing exercises to get them exploring their stories and characters, and there will be an option to share some of these exercises with the group.  Each student will be expected to bring their favorite YA novel to discuss with the class.
