Young Adult Fiction to DIE For!

Lots of aspiring authors come into the Library asking how they can get thier writing published. We are always happy to help show people everything we've got from the latest edition of The Canadian Writer's Market to monthly magazines like the Writer. But sometimes published authors are the best source for teaching you how to get your stories into bookstores.

On Saturday January 8 @ 1pm YA author Judith Graves will be joining us live via videoconference for a look at the dynamic world of young adult fiction, steps to publication and the life of a YA author. Residing in a northern Alberta community, similar to the fictional town of Redgrave, where Under My Skin, her debut novel, is set – Judith unhappily endures snow in the winter, and runs away from bees in the summer. A firm believer that Canadian teen fiction can be sexy, action packed and snarky as hell – Judith writes paranormal stories with attitude. If you’re writing fiction and want more information about the publishing industry, query process, etc…this is the session for you.

This is a free videoconference program and everyone is welcome to attend. the Brooks Public Library is a proud member of the RISE Network.
