Conversations with the YA Experts

Learn tips and tricks to writing Young Adult Literature from a panel of YA authors.

We know the path to a finished book is fraught with peril – here’s your chance to learn from authors who have successfully made the journey. The authors take questions from the audience, and their books are available for signing after each discussion.

May theme: Christina June and Jodi Meadows discuss the differences in author experience for veteran and debut authors.


Moderated by author Jon Skovron, organized by author Jessica Spotswood, and presented in partnership with One More Page Books.
