Faber Writing Academy 1 day YA course

Faber Writing Academy is offering SCBWI members a 10% discount on their Young Adult Fiction writing course with the award-winning Jaclyn Moriarty.

In this one-day course, we will ask what makes a book a YA book, and what makes a YA book shine. We'll discuss techniques for drawing on your own young adult self, at the same time as writing fiction that is fresh and immediate for contemporary readers. We'll workshop ideas for planning, plotting and polishing, and consider tips on publishing.

In YA, voice and character are pivotal; this course will suggests methods for writing teen protagonists who fly off the page and, if you are lucky, write your novel for you.
