Are you interested in writing for young adults? We are delighted to partner with SCBWI to bring you five authors ready to answer questions about the wherefores, whys, and hows of writing YA literature. We'll talk about getting started, and keeping the writing energy going. We'll dive into the great "outliners/vs. seat-of-the-pants writing-style" debate. We'll chat about agents, cover letters, submissions, inspiration, and publication. Our special guests include Amelia Brunskill (The Window) Michelle Falkoff (Questions I Want to Ask You) Jessie Ann Foley (Neighborhood Girls) Caleb Roehrig (White Rabbit) and Stephanie Kate Strohm (Prince in Disguise.)
These five writers have a wide range of experience and a host of stories, and we encourage people just beginning to think about writing to attend, as well as those of you currently writing (or finishing) a YA book. Get inspiration, information, and creative energy from The Book Stall, SCBWI, and these talented authors.
Refreshments will be served, door prizes will be awesome and abundant, each attendee will receive a 5.00 off coupon good for any one purchase in the store, and our guest authors will be happy to sign copies of their work. This event is recommended for ages 14 and up, and is free and open to the public.
