Back to the Future: Ignite Your Writing Career with Young Adult Fiction

with Jacquelyn Mitchard

Young Adult fiction is the only mass market publishing sector that is growing instead of shrinking. And as the editor of a Young Adult imprint, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Mitchard is at its forefront. Join Mitchard for a broad-ranging forum on what works, what sells, what lasts, with writing prompts, and more. 

Jacquelyn Mitchard is the author of 20 books for adults, children, and young adults, including The Deep End of the Ocean, the first book chosen for the Oprah Winfrey Book Club. A professor in the low-residency program in Creative Writing at Vermont College of Fine Arts, Mitchard teaches Fiction and Creative Non-Fiction. She is Editor-in-Chief of Merit Press, a Young-Adult only imprint under the aegis of F&W Media, which publishes Writers Digest among many other publications.

Workshop Cost: $50 - May 4th  1:00 – 4:00 PM
