From Spark To Manuscript: How To Write Your First Young Adult Novel A four-hour writer's workshop (NYC) Have you always wanted to write a novel but have no idea where or how to start? Do you love Twilight and secretly think 'I could write that'? Are you passionate and committed to storytelling for young adults? Emotional, exciting, personal. Young adult (YA) fiction is a vibrant, popular and lucrative part of the publishing industry. Published teen fiction author Georgia Clark ('She's With The Band') presents an intensive, interactive four-hour workshop to inspire, empower and inform writers who are new to novel writing. We'll cover how to turn your initial spark into a concept, outline and manuscript, how to find a unique voice for your main character and what sort of plot will appeal to YA readers and editors. This class will also help you find and commit to your perfect routine, as well as offer insight into what editors are looking for, dos and don't of YA, and the art of writing the perfect query letter. Come to class prepared to discuss AND develop the novel and/ or main characters you want to write about. This class is for writers with some experience, but are relatively new to the process of novel-writing. To register interest for this workshop and receive updates as to our winter schedule, please send your name, email address and a brief sample of your work (does not have to be fiction) to . The next class will take place in NYC in mid-November. The cost is $100. Placement will be limited.
