Description

Supplemented by interviews with successful authors of teen literature - including T. A. Barron, Jona Bauer, Chris Crutcher, and Lauren Myracle, among others - this book presents all the elements of fiction, from creating believable dialogue to executing an exciting plot, through real story excerpts. Packed with tips, tricks, and writing exercises from an award-winning author of teen fiction, the guide encourages teen writers to write creatively and explore all the elements and responsibilities of fiction. With the goal of building competent, satisfied young authors, advice is given on writing for the young-adult market, and young people are emboldened to write the stories that are theirs alone to tell.
