Imagine 4 years.
Four years, two suicides, one death, one rape, two pregnancies (one abortion), three overdoses, countless drunken antics, pantsings, spilled food, theft, fights, broken limbs, turf wars–every day, a turf war–six months until graduation and no one gets a medal when they get out. But everything you do here counts.
Helloooo! I could go on and on with book recommendations, I really could. But all I will ask is, Have you read Courtney Summers? Have you?? If you haven’t, stop right there and go read everything she’s ever written and then get excited, very very excited, for her April 2015 release ALL THE RAGE. And if you like my books, look into Kat Rosenfield (AMELIA ANNE IS DEAD AND GONE and her latest, INLAND), a beautiful, beautiful writer. Those are my recommendations, typed here with great passion.
I’ll be teaching a new YA novel writing workshop in New York City this fall, with Ideasmyth at the Writers Room in Manhattan.
The details about the course are below. If you have any questions about this workshop that you want to ask me first before applying, you are welcome to comment below or email me. Admissions are rolling and spaces are limited, so apply sooner rather than later!
