Get schooled in the art of writing fiction for teens

Writing & Selling the YA Novel offers a complete lesson plan for writing and publishing fiction for teens. Structured like a day of high school, award-winning young adult novelist K.L. Going takes her students through every stage of YA writing.

Learn how the YA genre has developed in History class. Toss around ideas during Gym. Create authentic teen characters in "English class". Craft convincing plots during Lunch. Add it all up in Math as you learn about agents and contracts. Along the way you'll find plenty of "homework" exercises to help you hone your skills - as well as input from actual teen readers.

At the end of your school day, you'll have all the knowledge a young adult author needs to write a book that speaks to teen readers - and get it published.

There is nothing here that can't be found online and in a more useful form. Also, for being a published writer, the author offers no insights beyond the trivial and obvious. The school class format is puerile, at best and adds nothing useful to the content. At times it strains to contain the subject. The author should follow her own advice and cut the constant use of '!'
