Young Adult Fiction

This 4 week workshop will be Oct. 26, Nov. 2, Nov. 9, and Nov. 16 from 7-9 p.m. at OSU-Tulsa.

#BookTok has over 11 billion views on Tiktok and sales of young adult fiction are up 70% since last year. With social media pushing the demand for YA books on the shelves, now is a perfect time to write about adolescence – whether in a fantasy or contemporary backdrop. In this workshop, we will study the foundations of a good YA novel and work on crafting realistic dialogue, progressing plot, creating dimensional characters and immersive settings.

Whether you are an experienced writer or not, this course will help give you the time and guidance you need to get your words onto paper. Each week, we will be working through unique writing exercises to spark up our imagination and add more tools to our writer’s craft box.

By the end of the course, each writer will have written and workshopped the first chapter of their future novel.
