Finding Your Young Adult Voice with Olivia Wildenstein
After a solid plot, voice is a pivotal factor in snagging an agent or a reader. This workshop is geared toward novel writers who wish to write to the Young Adult market (which is also read by many adults) and better understand it. The focus of the course will be put on craft: prose and dialogue. Wildenstein will help you find and polish your voice, and build your novel through plotting, pantsing, and editing. She will also share her experience of selling YA books in the independent and traditional markets.
The workshop will involve short exercises, as well as group discussions of excerpts she’ll bring along. Participants will work individually; once the writing exercises have been completed all will be encouraged, at some stage of the workshop, to read from what they have worked on.
Writing tools needed: laptop or notebook and pen. Working brain.
