This three-week class will delve into topics such as the teenage brain, coming of age arcs, writing authentic teen "evergreen" dialogue, and the responsibilities and ethics of writing YA. We'll examine mentor texts by young adult authors such as Nicola Yoon, Nina LaCour, Brandy Colbert, Maureen Johnson, Tahereh Mafi, Maurene Goo, Ibi Zoboi, Ryan Graudin, Jason Reynolds, and Jeff Zentner. Students will also have an opportunity to bring selections of works in progress for in-class feedback.

This class takes place in-person, at the Loft at Open Book; all participants must be fully vaccinated and must provide proof of vaccination before entering the classroom. Those without proof of vaccination will not be allowed into the classroom. Please plan to wear a mask during class.
