Live Seminar Via Zoom at 6:00PM CST
In the first six months of 2018, YA book sales had already reached $80.9 million, and though YA books are written for kids 12 to 18, most readers of YA books are actually adults. As you can see, the YA book industry is one of the hottest sectors of publishing.
In this seminar, you’ll learn about the continuing popularity of the YA book industry, including a recent spike in YA nonfiction. Most importantly, you’ll participate in exercises that will assist you in developing an authentic and engaging YA voice for fiction. Join Alex Temblador, an award-winning author of the YA sensation, Secrets of the Casa Rosada, for an exhilarating seminar!
