A few weeks ago, I heard about an online writing workshop hosted by YARWA (Young Adult Romance Writers of America). The workshop is titled Writing for the Young Adult Market: Where Do I Begin?
I spend more time than I should surfing the internet about the YA market and writing and publishing, so I wasn’t sure this workshop would offer anything new. But, I filed the info away for later, just in case.
Normally I forget everything I file away for later, but not this workshop. I think it was because the instructor, author Jordan Dane, writes YA thrillers. Holy frozen tacos, Batman, I love YA thrillers! If Ms. Dane wrote YA contemporary, I would’ve immediately forgotten about it. But YA thrillers… yes, my precious!
|Hee-hee. Get it?|
So, I signed up. It was only $20. It starts February 20th and ends March 2nd. Here’s a link to it. I have no idea what to expect or how an online workshop works, but I’m excited! I’ve never done anything like this before. But there has to be other ways to improve your craft other than reading, reading writing books, and writing all the time, right? Right.
Do you know of any workshops or conferences that are w$o$r$t$h it?
P.S. Happy Valentine’s Day!
P.P.S. I liked The River, but I’m not sure I luuuuuurve it yet. Thoughts?
