Meeting Room 162 (20)

California-based YA author Bree Barton shares secrets for writing compelling YA fiction.

How do you write a great YA novel? Spoiler alert: the way you’d write any great novel, with even more courage, honesty, and heart. In this special 4-hour workshop, you’ll learn the secrets to world-building, crafting a compelling plot, breathing life into a cast of characters, and developing themes that are powerful but not didactic. Whether you’re working on a draft or hoping to spark a new idea, bring a laptop or pen/paper and be ready to write.   

Bree Barton is the author of the fierce feminist YA fantasy HEART OF THORNS (KT/HarperCollins, 2018) and the sequel TEARS OF FROST (out November 5, 2019). Her books have been published in seven countries and translated into Spanish, Polish, and Italian. Bree also teaches Rock ‘n’ Write, a nonprofit dance-and-writing workshop she created for teen girls. You can find her on Instagram @speakbreely.
