A compelling narrative voice is one of the most important elements of the young adult novel. So how do you master this? In this workshop, we’ll explore examples of great narrative voice in YA. Then, through writing and discussion, you’ll learn how to use character development, plot, and a dash of freedom to create a compelling, authentic voice that resonates – a hallmark of this genre.
