Young adult literature: Approved for all audiences
Even if you’re eligible for AARP, don’t be a snob about young adult fiction. It’s some of the most creative literature around.
This spring I took a class called “Writing the Young Adult Novel.” I’ve long been interested in penning a contribution to one of my favorite literary genres, ever since I was once a young adult. While I had considered myself relatively up on which young adult (YA) authors to pay attention to, I realized I’d merely been sticking my toes in the genre.
