Writing, Pitching and Selling Fiction for Young Adults (YA)

What makes great YA fiction? How can one break into this competitive market? What are the best options for self-publishing and marketing YA fiction?

Jennifer Silva Redmond, longtime editor and publishing consultant has worked with many authors of YA fiction–one client’s new YA novel just hit the shelves–and with many publishers to market their YA books.

Bring a one paragraph pitch or a query letter about your book, whether it is already written or still at the concept stage. We’ll work on how to get it written, polished, and ready to be sold.
