This workshop will cover how Young Adult (YA) fiction differs from middle grade and adult fiction. There will be an exploration on how to create a convincing voice, central characters, and a page-turning plot. There will also be opportunities to write and share work as well as a discussion on how to polish a manuscript for submission to agents, and also how best to create a social media profile for the YA market. Sarah Crossan is the author of five novels including ONE which won the Children’s Books Ireland 2016 Book of the Year Award as well as the YA Prize 2016. She was shortlisted twice for the Carnegie Medal and won with ONE in 2016.
