Make Your YA Novel a Reality with David Bowles

Gemini Ink 1111 Navarro St, San Antonio

Do you aspire to become the next Jacqueline Woodson, Suzanne Collins, or Benjamin Saenz? From dystopian adventures to explorations of young romance to coming-of-age stories, the demand for fiction for young adult readers is as strong as ever. But how do you take a YA novel from concept to reality?

In this three-part course, award-winning author David Bowles will guide participants through the process of developing their ideas for a YA novel from a concept to a synopsis and first chapter. We will discuss stylistic elements when writing longform fiction for teens—prose novels, novels-in-verse, graphic novels. We will also learn how to prepare to pitch YA (young adult) projects to agents and/or editors.
