"Young Adult Prompts Gone Wild is a funny and perspicacious look at the tropes in Young Adult literature." -- Kartik Narayanan, Reedsy Discovery (5/5)
Love. Friendship. Trauma. Identity. Vampire sex.
Young Adult fiction covers all the complicated coming-of-age subjects that make growing up such a unique experience. But for every YA story told with subtlety and skill, there are a thousand dull, cliché-riddled turds out there, written by a bunch of out-of-touch cat moms and dog dads in their mid-forties.
Screw that. It's time for the next gen of writers to craft characters, stories, and worlds that'll flip the YA genre on its head. From temperamental teen Neanderthals to drug-inspired slam poems, Young Adult Prompts Gone Wild has exactly what aspiring authors need to rebel against today's literary system and break free from convention. So, buckle up, because the Nu-YA revolution starts with you!
