Registration for the big annual summer SCBWI conference in Los Angeles is live… and I’m on faculty this year! I’m giving two talks and I’m also teaching two Monday writing intensives!
I’ve always wanted to write a story about witches… and now I get to do so for an upcoming YA anthology edited by Tess Sharpe and Jessica Spotswood: Toil & Trouble, a feminist collection of witchy stories is coming in 2018 from Harlequin Teen.
I’m so thrilled to be a contributor to Kelly Jensen’s YA anthology Here We Are: Feminism for the Real World. There are 44 diverse voices in this anthology, which features a scrapbook-style treasure full of essays, interviews, and art that all speak in some way to feminism and what that means for teens today.
The Cybils Awards—the Children’s and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Awards—were announced on Valentine’s Day… and The Walls Around Us won for YA Speculative Fiction!
