Writing for the Young Adult Market

Writing for the Young Adult (YA) Market

Author Keith Gray will lead this amazing workshop.

In recent years Young Adult fiction has been outselling all other categories of fiction in both the UK and USA, and it’s still growing. But what exactly is YA fiction, how do you get involved and how do you write it well? Join award-winning YA author Keith Gray as he leads a fully interactive workshop uncovering this modern phenomena of the publishing world.

Using examples from famous writers as well as work-shopping your own ideas Keith will explore ways to capture the attention of today’s teenage readers with engaging and authentic storylines; the importance of characterization, voice and Point of View; the dangers of patronizing your reader and how to tackle contentious subject matter sensitively; developing your themes, revising your work and accessing the market.

This is the perfect opportunity to work with a writer who has over 20 years experience in the publishing industry. Expect lively, enjoyable sessions packed full of helpful hints and tips.
